So I normally don't do NGDs, instead posting in the General threads, but thought I'd post this because reasons. Work schedule and Photobucket fail had pretty much kept me from creating the post when I first got this, but slight respite from Day Job (not long, still gotta head back and work over the weekend) and moving what little I could over to imugr (lel download timeouts) meant I had time to fix up some things and get her presentable. So pics, first, then stats, followed by rambling. Looks like a typical E-LP from Edwards... But... wait. Plain-top? Nibs?? Two-screw TRC??? Replaced guts is replaced. CTS pots and orange drops. Switchcraft. Old-school Navigator-style cream back covers. Right, so this one popped up on my favorite GAS-inducing and GAS-resolving site, Yahoo Auctions Japan via Buyee. Old-school iteration of the Edwards E-LP, rumored to be burn-off of old Navigator kit parts. Lemon drop plain top, two screw TRC, fret end binding, MOP inlays, stock ESP pups. 1989 model, if serial number convention for ESPs of this era is any indication, but since it's ESP, it could be meaningless, but seems to be consistent with E-LPs of the late 80s, early 90s. It were a mite more tore-up, so it wound up being a project guitar. Previous owner replaced the stock Edwards/Navigator TRC with a Gibby bell-shaped one, plus painted up the cavities with shielding paint, which would have covered any markings in the pickup cavities. Original bone nut was cut to damn near the fret board, so that needed to be replaced. Screws were very corroded, and it looked like the pots and caps were replaced, which prevented further dating. My mods were a new bone nut, corroded screws got a good soaking in distilled vinegar, replaced the guts with CTS pots, orange drop caps, and Switchcraft switch and jack. Kept the previous owner's shielding paint and replacement TRC, even though it made any further identification of the Edwards moot.
