    I wonder what are people who post those kind of ads thinking.
    I go through all local ads every day and some of the stuff I see is just ridiculous, I especially like the detailed descriptions some people give like "guitar for sale" or my personal favourite "guitar for sale, made of wood, steel strings" :laugh2:

    THAT IS CRAZY!!!!








    Not the body-gouging... that's just a "finish choice". Whoever mounted those tuners needs a slapping. ;)

    Shame, but probably a nice guitar. Judging by the harmonica bridge and the headstock I'm guessing Norlin era. If you could get it cheap and take it to someone for a refin it might be worth the effort. I hate seeing old Gibsons getting abused like that!

    It's the pocket-knife version of this. You just know that's where the inspiration came from.

    Probably started with an accidental huge gouge or scratch, and the owner decided to do a prison-tattoo-artist rendition of a "cover-up".

    Looks like it was "routed" for a Jazz bass pickup, or one or the big black pickups that Alembic basses used.

    God damn shame to happen to a '73 SG Special..

    There are some truly stupid people that own guitars..
