Unhappy A PMC gone down the drain

I couldn't believe my eyes. I was checking out an Israeli second hand board and found this:



The seller say that everything is original besides the paint, so according to the pickups color and neck it is a PMC. He wants 2000$ USD for it.
What a shame

This reminds me of the movie "Christine" before he fixed the car up.

I tought about it but 2000$ is way to much for it's current state. I can build a new one from scratch for less then that.

Re: A PMC gone down the drain

Dude, that makes me wanna vomit. I would love to meet the douchenozzle who did this. My PMC is beat to hell, but at least the paint is original. Damn man, what a shame. I would buy it for $1200 or so, just for the parts, but not $2k. That neck alone would fetch $700 or so on the bay.

It looks like a bad coffee table.

Why do people do these things? They should have all their guitars taken away from them.

(Whoops typo)

Re: A PMC gone down the drain

Why are all you PMC owners upset? this can only increase the value of your guitars.

(hey, someone gotta put a positive twist on this somehow, hehe)

I would think that non-PMC owners would be even more upset because that 1 less they have a chance to buy .
