Whoa! Deja vu for me at least! :no:
When this first popped up I thought for a moment I had travelled back in time to when I first saw my Urchin 14 years ago.(!) It too was sprayed over with grey paint and had stickers plus a butchered head stock.

It was a bit of a marathon nightmare to get it to restoration. For those who enjoy watching a masochist at work here's the link to all 17 pages of it:

But I digress. . .
Unfortunately there's only one picture which is not too helpful in judging the condition, but it appears to be OK.

Mine was originally black, and judging by the head stock, this one was white.

For some reason the MMK45 was swapped out for a DiMarzio, which is probably just fine except that, aesthetically, it doesn't look like it belongs there, especially with a brass coloured pickup mount. :toopid:

I'll wager it's missing the trem bar, and there's no mention made of an original case. That is a real problem for this guitar shape especially if planning to gig it.

As far as a resto/refinish is concerned it should be a relatively easy project (compared to mine and Corsair's at least).

The price is very good considering that they don't show up too often:
CAD$475-No case. No mention of shipping.
