His name is actually Patrick. It's really traditional.

Trade pending

‘82-84 ESP built Navigator SA120. Nitro finish, original pickups, Tonepros AVR-II, stock tailpiece and SKB hardcase. I believe it has been regretted. Given the wear on the guitar, the frets have little wear. Plays amazingly well. Sings up and down the neck.

Needs a new wiring harness. Ripped the old one out, tried to rewire it with new pots and gave up. Forgot how much I hate rewiring semis.

I will throw in some imperial sized black top hat knobs along with the original black bell knobs.

$1000 shipped/paypaled in the continental US.
Will also trade for a 80/90s Greco or Tokai SG, cherry, small guard with humbuckers.

So is it functional at the moment or does it need a rewire first?

This has your name on it @Roxy13
yes, this is beyond my skills. I would put this up towards a trade once fixed. Greco SG, mint collection. Many upgrades, shielding paint added to control cavity, added ground, CTS 500k pots, orange drop caps, swithcraft jack and switch, montreux knobs and pointers, belden wiring, kc case. I also performed a painstaking level and crown. Only selling because I just purchased an Eastman SB59V and need to recoup some cash. I would call the condition very good. There is some "clouding" on the headstock. No major bumps or bruises. The wiring could be neater but works fine. Action is set very low, with truss rod adjusted very close to straight.

Never tried it. Do you have to wire externally and move it all through the f hole as you go?

Usually use fishingline to the old pots and reattach line to new pots when pulling them back in. Nothing there to begin with, I have no clue. I'm sure it's done.

Yes. Solder pickup leads to the pots/wiring harness while outside the body. Then the assembly needs to be dropped into the guitar via one of the f-holes. Jack first, then one pot at a time, being careful not to twist too much.

I don’t currently have a suitable place to do the work, otherwise I’d offer the guitar with a wired harness.

Nylon twine works the best. You cut lengths of twine and thread them through each control hole and through the f-hole before tying to the pots. That way you’re not trying to fish for the twine through the pot holes.
Hardest part is getting everything inside without twisting a wire off a switch or pot.

I wish, but I have no money nor the right trade either!

Yes. I have long enough fingers that I can lift the pots and switch into place with my pinky through the f hole lol. I use a fishin' wire for the jack (old guitar string through aquarium tubing with a washer tied to the end). That has worked out best for me. I've tried using wire, string, dental floss and aquarium tubing. I can get them in in minutes though using my pinky.
