So I bought this a couple weeks ago with the intention of chopping off the neck and using it for something else. But I cleaned it up today and, you know, the sickness....this is a pre-war guitar and while no Martin, I'm having a hard time with the thought of taking a saw to it.
I have two more of this same guitar in playable condition already, I don't t need a third. The back is coming unglued and every brace on the back is loose in the guitar. One brace is missing. 4 out of the 6 brass gears are missing in the tuners but the bakelite is in reasonable shape.
Here are my options:
1. Does anyone else want this project? $40 plus shipping and it's yours, but you promise not to chop it up.
2. If you want it and you want me to fix it, I'll do it for $150 plus shipping, which is a lot of work if I have to remove the back to reglue the braces. (or for 150 I'd also sell one of the already playable ones.)
3. It goes back on the shelf until I either have the guts to chop it or I find someone who wants a squareneck.
