    Yep,

    It's a right hand 59 burst that was "converted" to left.

    May be butt-ugly, but I bet (once you get all that plastic and that godawful tailpiece off it) it would still play like a 'burst...

    My '58 might be the second-most buggered burst after that bat-burst- I heavily restored it. It had the control cavity enlarged, several additional holes in the top for extra controls, had roland guitar synth guts installed (!) (Drugs can be a terrible thing...)

    Replaced wood and rerouted the remains of the control cavity, plugged the holes in the top, refin, and viola! (see my avatar).

    But you know what? Damn guitar plays like a wet dream! Collectors probably wouldn't piss in its general direction, but I'd put it up against any 500k uberburst out there for tone & feel-

    Old wood!

    Whenever I see that guitar I think of "The Borg" ...if they assimilated a guitar, that's what it would look like ;)

    You know, I've seen that thing on several forums, and it's starting to grow on me. Not in an aestecically pleasing sort of way, but I don't know, maybe I'm just taking pity on it. I'd love to re-convert it back to righty and get all that plastic off of it. As for the cutaway, ehh, it's butt-ugly, but it's part of it's character. Think of all the beer-soaked gig this thing has seen.

    I've seen pics of it with the plastic off, so maybe that's its current condition(?)
    LOTTA screw holes though...
