    NGD: Nightmare at the RHLC.

    So, this popped up for sale on HCAF a week or so ago, and the voice inside said that it deserved better.

    Here's a Box. cobbled together from other boxes.

    here is a case. Solid.

    Hoo... boy. Here we go.

    What a sad, tragic downfall this guitar has experienced from the post it once held.

    About an hour later, and half a bottle of goof-off less...

    Can you believe this is the same guitar?

    The dings and scars will remain, I think. Wiring Harness is complete, just need to drop it in, as well as a bridge pickup. The Trem needs some parts, though, and while I've found the parts I need, I may just elect to replace it with an OFR. ESP Synclairs are not easy things to find, and this one doesn't have an arm.

    also considering stripping the finish off the back of the neck, not like that would devalue this any further. I don't think it's going anywhere, anyway.

    When nothing less than second-best will do.

    Nice! I also rescued a beat-up Mirage Custom a few years ago, though mine was an earlier one with the Jackson headstock and HSS pickups. They're very nice guitars, and probably still undervalued for what they are. Here's mine (the one on the left...). It already had the OFR added when I got it, but I had to add my own switches and knobs and replace the output jack.

    God, how I hate stickers on guitars

    Good job cleaning that beauty up!
