I bought this guitar for $400 off eBay about a month back and it was stripped of all electronics. I replaced the tuners with Schaller locking tuners (very slight modification to make them work), put on some Dunlop straplock buttons, added a switchcraft jack and volume pot, bought a Cephius bridge pickup, and added a mini switch to wire up a coil split or killswitch when I decide what I would like to do. In all I think it costed me about $550 total. Not too bad for an upgraded Intrepid Pro 828 EB If you can see I also made an insert for the intrepid case that is between the neck rest and the upper horn. This is to keep the body in place more securely.
