That's sad. I can't see how that is an upgrade at all. To each his/her own I guess.

How an someone can do this to a guitar?


Doing it is one thing. Having the nerve to try and pawn it off on someone as an upgrade?

Looks like he used a die grinder to remove the finish.

Excellent neck mod.
Superb paint and body work.
Obviously done by a very talented luthier.

I do, however, find the way he has hung the guitar sideways from the floor a bit disconcerting ...

The shims sticking out of the front of the neck pocket do not suggest good things. First there is a lot of them and second normally you shim to the rear to change neck angle. Looks like a homespun job. But I will agree it's a nice case...

sorry Robert1950.... I just had to..

I have a guitar mag somewhere that has an article on this guy who sells telecasters (I think) with no finish and with varying levels of minor cosmetic body damage. They look really sweet though.
The problem is not just the finish part, but look how he fix the neck...look little crappy! I treat my guitar like a baby, maybe I'm extrem but there's a soul in that beautiful piece of wood. What he did it's like sandblast a friend...
