New guitar day, a birthday present to myself, a PGM 301. I was disappointed when I opened the case. It was advertised on eBay as a 9/10 guitar in great condition with light use, but as you can see, it's not any where near that. Asked for a partial refund to cover the fretwork required, and at least a new bridge, and I ended up getting $200 back. I've been wanting one of these for years, so whilst the guitar's condition is a disappointment, I'm glad to finally have one.
The neck finish has gone all glossy and sticky, so I'll need to hit that with the 0000 steel wool to bring back the satin finish. I've given the guitar a thorough clean up now. It stank something bad, but better now. I've sprayed the crap out of the case, and left it outside for a bit, so it's not so bad. The single coil cover is cracked too, but if I'm to replace it I'd like one marked with the DiMarzio logo, so it fits with the OEM specs. Don't mind if it's got the same yellowing. The guitar was filthy as hell too, so gross.
Once the fretwork is brought back to a better condition, and I've given the fretboard a better clean up this should be a beauty. It's playing pretty nicely already.
