Somebody pulled everything from this guitar, endpin, saddle and nut, machines, even frets and zerofret, damaging the fretboard. (which got me interested in the first place because of unusual "skunk stripe" inlays. If I ever hit the mods/building page, it will show up there)
What a waste, it's been a real nice neck! Back is distinctly arched and rather fine bookmatched maple, but it is split, what must have caused this mess. Am salvaging this as well.

Anyone ever seen another AOU (or is it a cyrillic DOU)?

This (heel) happens frequently while steaming óut a neck, and isn't a big deal. Gotta make things worse before making them better, as Jerry Rose says. (bridge plate off course is another story; I suppose it isn't a Hauser or Torres?)
I tossed one of those over the fence behind Spirit of Newfoundland dinner theater on Cathedral, after we screeched in Bourdain. RIP He was a good man. We told him forget those big fakes out there n stay here. He said it sounded fantastic. Fucking cleaners... Never trust municipal city hallers.
Never gave a damn bout the meter man, til I had to read the meter, man.

Ich weiß.
Erst die Monotonie von dem Ganzen bringt die Leute zum Tanzen.

"next week, I'm going to steam out the neck of my beloved Yamaha" (that I got at a shop called "Himmelreich") Been thinking that for 15 years.
Pop is the most wonderful music – as long as it's played with three basses, a string section, and two french horns going "Vroop-Vrooo".

Shit happens. Don't think someone did this on purpose. Must've been in the water or something and it separated. Bummer. It's cool but way too expensive!🥺
i love delay SO much ...that i procrastinate all the time.

...plus Mosrite quality control wasn't always the best. It probably got wet or was around a lot of changes in temperature over the years. Too bad the missing chunk isn't in the case!
