THIS - at first glance - is a rather fine looking 1983 Thunder III finished in Onyx and it seems to in excellent condition. The strange thing is that the owner bought it new and within a few years he decided it would be great to convert it to a 10 string (as you do!).
20 odd years down the road the seller came to his senses and converted it back to normal. The headstock still needs a bit of work and the 'Westone' logo has gone (I think it was abalone on this model?), but I believe there is still a good guitar to be had from this.
£250 Buy It Now, but it is open to bids, although a reserve price applies.

You seem to have wa-a-a-a-y more than yer share of wacko DIY wannabe "luthiers".

I do wonder, however, about the nut....
FWIW, an after market esoteric nut is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and a great way to convert your money into someone else’s.
