This monster was my first guitar, a cheap Johnson strat-copy. Unfortunately back when I had more enthusiasm than talent I decided to 'upgrade' it. I replaced the body with a MIM strat, put on new tuners, pickups and pretty much everything else. Due to the aforementioned lack of talent I botched the job and was left with a pretty much unplayable guitar, so it's been sat in a case for years without being played.
I always planned to fix it up again, but a lack of tools and an acquisition of new axes means I just need to get rid of it. Not wanting to send it to the tip just yet, I thought I'd offer it up here for anyone who wants to have a stab at fixing it up or just wants some of the parts.
The guitars issues are as follows:-
Neck: The neck is really thin and shreddy. Sadly, I put some threaded inserts in and pretty much ruined it. My assumption that a strat copy neck would fit a genuine strat body also tuned out to be incorrect...
Body: The body's off a MIM strat. Sadly I botched putting the bridge on and the screws are all in the wrong place. If you wanted to use it you'd have to cut that bit out and plug it. Apart from that it's in very good shape and has only a few small scratches and one small chip in the neck-pocket.
Bridge: The bridge is some kind of Wilkinson. Seems ok and hasn't really been used.
Machine Heads: The tuners are Kluson's and are locking. They are also in great shape.
Electrics: The pickups are toneriders, the pots and switch are CTS (I think) and the Jack's Switchcraft. The soldering is really, really dodgy, but everything works.
If anybody did want it you would be doing me a hug favour taking it off my hands. If not it'll be going to the tip as I need more room for other guitars.
P.S. I've not done any deals on here before (I almost bought a Charvel off toxictrace, but my eBay account is here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/bezzemad
P.P.S. Collection in person would be best, but if you wanted to buy it from somewhere further afield I could ship it... you pay for it though.
Can you approximate shipping to London W13 mate? There's some parts there that I'm after.
