horrifying though it is, it looked like that person figured out how to keep that guitar playable even though it sustained pretty awful damage. i guess that the main thing for them. the seller reckons he'll still get over $6k for the axe though.
i can't find a good picture of a good example, but one thing that always causes me to recoil in horror is the site of a floyd rose that has been added to a guitar. don't get me wrong, i've no problem with floyd rose trems, but they have their place.
