At first glance I thought you meant the extra string tree, but then I saw that big piece of stuff bolted on.

At least it could be fixable. If you took it off you could probably hide the screw holes pretty well.

Ohgodno. It's not just extra pickguard. He's routed for a pre-amp and a three way switch.



That turns into Crying or Very sad .

I saw that listing earlier today and when I saw the buy it now price my first thought was 'I wonder whats wrong with it', then I saw the pictures.
Even if the routing were fixed the body would need a respray, thus destroying the entire reason for buying the guitar in the first place. If the price were a quite bit lower I might consider getting it, take the 2nd pickguard off, fill the route and throw a sticker over it.
I'm currious to see what kind of mess is underneath though.....

Douche bags shouldn't be allowed near vintage guitars.

If i had the money i would probably buy it anyway. It is about a grand cheaper than normal because of that route.
I would find some way to fill the route and like Rod said, cover it with a sticker or some duct tape.
Even tho its been butcherd, its still a '69 Comp. Orange Mustang with matching headstock, and i would really like to have one.

I remember 10 years ago you could find compstangs for like $700 - $900. Now... jeez, you need to refinance your house to get one.

About 8 or 9 years ago a guy left his vintage Mustang & Morsite in my shop for like a year. So I sent the Mustang to Warmoth, they copied it and sent it back to me.... with the first Warmoth Blue Compstang Shocked But me being the nice guy I am (really f*cking retarded) I gave the Compstang to the guy and said here you go man. He took and sold it on ebay!!! I was annoyed, that I gave it to him, something special... he opted out for money. I should of kept it.

a red one sold on ebay the other day for under $1000. granted it didn't have a matching headstock, but if you're willing to pay an extra grand for that like some people do you're off your nut.

I saw this ad again yesterday and I thought the same thing, Stewart.
Just ignore the 800 lb gorilla in the room

With that said, I am watching it and if the price stays below what it originally went for I'm going to get in on the bidding. :}

he's added some pics of the routing. why anyone would choose to do that on the upper horn rather than keep it under the guard, i have no idea.

At least it's clean.

Surely that mod was done some time ago, judging by the different paint colour under the plate?

looks like it. i reckon that could be fixed with a bit of care and patience. obviously it'd never be completely masked, but it could be camouflaged quite a bit.
