ok. 100% honest. we look at this now and think "oh dear god" but i've seen enough 70's vans with this shit painted on them...... however imho the price is way too high. maybe $1000 at most.

If there was a chart this seller would be at number one for most appearances. He just has a massive troll hoard full of overpriced rubbish

The guitar is like one of the least offensive things ever posted in the thread!

The real inexcusable garbage is the run-on x 30 description that doesn’t actually describe anything even though it’s had significant mods. I’ll forever stand by the Strat Jack being one of the most innovative and smart and useful features in all of electric guitars, so I ain’t mad at it.

This is a guy in Germany who's come up a gazillion times because of his insane over-pricing. He used to post very limited descriptions in large multi-coloured text & generally used one photo per auction. So, this is a marked improvement as he's post a few detailed pics. Whoopee!!

I seem to remember this body being on a complete guitar (how could you forget that paint job) so I've a feeling he's having to part it out. Maybe he's finally realised that he'll never shift stock if he's asking so much?
I also see his colourful descriptions have gone & have been replaced with even less informative descriptions in black & white followed by a HUGE amount of T & Cs. How typically German! AVOID.

How does he get access to so many vintage guitars?

music-outlet-shop
Being european and searching for Mustangs and related all the time, that seller comes up a lot for me.
The one that annoys me the most has got to be this one. I mean, WTF with that price for worthless crap.

He keeps relisting it, too.

Has to be some sort of bad german sense of humor I don't understand.

Geez it hurts every time:
- his stupid ads
- his insane prices
- that he's located in the same city as me (as in, imagine IF he were reasonably priced)

Yeah, I've been trying to wrap my head around

-where he's getting all that weird stuff from
-how he manages to keep his business running with this kind of pricing...

for YEARS now

you forgot that it's all a pile of mutilated crap :D

I wish I could

1/ Block his listings and never see them again and

2/ Unsee almost all of them because the emotions they stir aren't positive.
