Every piece has to work extra hard to make this a thing

Rosewood fretboard! So no black beauty was harmed!
Yep.....plus its not any Gibson inlay dimension I've ever seen.
And maybe its the angle of the pics, but the inlay looks off centre too.
Then the split diamond parts on the end have been poorly aligned as well.

This is what happens when a luthier uses meth for ideas.... simply put, just say no.

Make a good weed digger though.

Mixed emotions on this one.
Like the famous headless SG, this was probably some poor soul's attempt at salvaging a broken Custom, but they couldn't afford to have the repair done properly.

Considering what they did.... they didn't do a bad job... but it is a shame that it was not repaired properly.
