    This what 15 bucks can get you nowadays.
    The seller told me it needed some love and care, but it came with a case so it could handle the shipping, at least.
    Now, some surface-rust here and there but nothing critical. It smelled like fermented manure, though.
    A pleasant surprise was that the bridge emg-hz was swapped for a 81.
    I'm quite pleased!

    That’s great! I had used this same model as my main guitar in a gigging band for a couple years. What a deal!

    Really awesome score! Just curious though, how does one (or what does one do to) get a guitar to smell like manure? I don't smoke, but I know how cigarettes can kind of permeate everything, but that would have to be some pretty toxic crap for a poo-stink to work its way into your beautiful guitar like that. I know you bought it second hand, but that is just kind of weird. Or maybe you meant the case? Still strange though, my man. I can only see it, so congrats again!

    The moral of this story is: don’t do drugs, kids - or someday you will sell nice guitar for 15 bucks. :lol:
    Seriously, dude. What a score.

    Probably a stolen guitar. Did you report it yet?

    Definitely something fishy here if you didn't buy it from a friend/family or something like that.

    The IQ it takes to upgrade a pickup does not equal the IQ to sell that guitar for 15 bucks

    OP did say that it had some rust and smelled like shit so it's possible that someone legitimately came into possession of it and, for the aforementioned reason, just wanted to get rid of the thing. I mean, even the most depraved of scoundrels around here would know that they could get more than $15 for a smelly guitar.

    The serialnumber with pics was handed over to the autorities earlier this week. Nothing came up, but I would be contacted if something were to.

    The person who I bought it from also sold some other guitars and amps, not nearly as cheap as this and in way better condition. I reckoned I just got lucky.

    Damn dude. Looks almost mint condition apart from some rust on the screws. Nice catch! And I'm sure you can get rid off the smell. There's tons of tutorials on the internet for that kind of stuff.
