LULZ. My U1 was like that when I first got it - bit of b string from switch nut to bridge.

My 335 was like that for a few months when I had a wood bridge on it. Good times.

Bet it sounds awful, but I like the looks of the thing. Has a Musima/Klira vibe to it.

It looks like they've taken the pickguard and electronics off a mini guitar and stuck it on a regular sized one. Also, what the fuck is that bridge cover doing there, right at the end of the body? It seems most pointless to me...

it's no more unnecessary than the jag trem plate on John Squire's custom

It says right in the auction that they left the original tailpiece on cause it looked cool, on Mr. Squire's guitar he had to actually put that plate on a custom body guitar knowing damn well it never did nor would it ever serve a purpose other than to look cool.
