Came to post this one, what an atrocity. I was thinking to make a super low offer and try to salvage it, but I think that's beyond my skill set. Maybe a job for Will?

this one comes up every so often, the dude sometimes tries to sell it on facebook saying it's worth like $5k
What I don't get about hack jobs like this one is like... if you have a Jaguar, but you want a Les Paul, just fucking sell the Jaguar and buy a Les Paul. Why hack up a perfectly good guitar to turn it into something completely the opposite of what it actually is, especially when the thing that you want already exists? No no, let's bust out the router and have a fucking custom vibrato plate made!

I think until not very long ago you couldn't sell a Jaguar and get anywhere close to the cost of a (Gibson) Les Paul.

Yeah, you're right. But it still bothers me. >:(
