Saddest 540R I've seen

When I was parting Ibbies the 540R was sacred and I would only keep or flip those. Except for a few basket cases like the one here. Here's the worst of it. It looked like a screw driver was used to I don't know what.

The good side is that the neck off that guitar has followed me through several years and different guitars and is still my favorite to play on. The frets are half gone in the 1-5 area but it doesn't buzz or fret out. It feels great.

Good one, Frank. No that one went away a long time ago. I couldn't stand to keep it around because it just brought me down. It's out there somewhere, hopefully refinished and with no memory of those 'bad old days'.

Re: Saddest 540R I've seen

Why is it that those reverse red bursts seem to get the most abuse of any Radius? Seriously, I've seen a bunch of those that were pretty screwed up. The one I bought literally had a can of white house paint spilled on it. I completely disassembled everything on it and cleaned/scraped/soaked till it was renewed. Looks great now, but there are still traces of white in secret places if you know where to look.
