What a shame.
You wonder what goes through some people's heads. . ."I'll just hack out a chunk of the top with the kitchen carving knife and jam this ugly Stratocaster thingy in there. Ya, that'll look kewl!" :freaksmile: :doh:

And it is at $371 no less!!! That's way more than I would go on a similar 6-string in that condition.

Maybe the new owner is good with wood although from the looks of it that is going to be hard to correct. Or an identical bass with a bad neck?
