This was going to be harvested for the neck and hardware.
But I cannot chop this axe up.
So I will give it some T.L.C and nurse it back to health.
A Vester concert series.
I have no idea what it is made from.
I think it was made in Japan in the 1980's.
And I think it will kick ass when reconditioned. :yesway:

The search continues for a bolt on neck donor guitar for the trem equiped c.b.g project. :)

Hm, that does look like it could be potentially badass.

Where the hell was it that it got that dirty? :lol:

It was sitting in the miranda music workshop.
Right at the back, next to the mammoth fossil.
It sat on the floor for 10 years.
I mentioned I was looking for a donor guitar for a c.b.g project.
He bolted upstairs and bought it down.
By the time I got home I knew it was to good to chop up.
After sitting with it for 20 minutes I could see potential in a refit.

A little snooping reveals it is a neck through guitar.
So it is getting a full refit and refinish.
I used to drool over some of the Vester guitars in the 80,s when I was a punk ass kid with no money.
Only thing that has changed is I am 20 years older.
And I scored a vester finally. :p

I LOVE getting other peoples trash and seeing what can be done with it.
I will post updates as I fix her up.
And it is my 1st guitar with shark tooth inlays. :D

The guitar has been named "The fix". :metal:

One of the pots has a circut board attached to it.
I have no idea what it does.
Is it part of the active pickups?

I would like to put some passive pups in it.
Maybe a OFR.
And a refinish of some sort. :metal:

Steve - if you rethink the passive pups thing - I have a bunch of super cheap EMG 81's for sale.
