88 540S Pawn shop find - Refin job

Hey all, this is the most ridiculous find, I have ever run across. im in local pawn shop other day, this Ibby is leaning against counter. Missing 3 strings, both vol knobs, the locking nuts, and strap locks? I ask the guy how much? He says I dont know, let me see what we got into it, comes back and says 75.00? I about **** myself right there, Figured it didn't work, bought it anyway, got it home, and lo and behold it works perfectly and sounds great. It was originally Black Cherry, but looked like the guy used it to beat his drunk drummer up,(we all have one of them now, dont weevil:, so I just decide to strip it down all the way to the Mahogany, stain it, and leave it, here is the finished fiddle, gotta say this thing looks pretty awesome in the light, all in all I have 80.00 (5.00 set of strings) into this beast, all the missing parts I had, love those uneducated pwans shop guys, later all
