What is this?

Looks kinda cool except I'd go with a pearly white pickgard instead....

EBay #3706990246

Any guesses? It's not mine although I thought about bidding on it.

Yeah it may be, but if its cheapish, it certainly looks worth while modding it up. New pickups and a replacement bridge and you will be away. I really like the look of both actually, they look sweet.

you can't always mod something to perfection.. think of it as a car.. you won't ever be able mod a Ford focus to run like a ferrari.. just impossible.. with the amount you'd put into it.. you could buy something else

maybe, but if it feels good and for a player who doesnt care much about a floyd rose, better pickups and 6 locking tuners could turn this into a good instrument!
