Just pulled this out of a skip

It's got a Washburn Mercury Series neck but I don't know what guitar this body came from.

Save me hours googling it please

Plugged it on and theres a lovely tone of it.

Looks like an LP special copy of some sort. I'd say franz ferdinand would love that guitar

Also check back soon for news of the greatest bargin of all time....althought free from a skip actually probably does beat it seeing as I had to pay real money.

That's it! I knew good ol' Thumped wouldn't let me down

The original neck looks way nicer than the Washburn one

Looking around the net for parts- I've found a scratchplate, need volume/tone knobs, a plate to go on the back of the neck (washburn i assume)

I also need to replace the yoke at the top of the neck- what do you call it? a bridge?

It's a bit banged up- but at this price....


By the way, I think it's the heaviest guitar I've ever held

heres a view of the replacement neck- not as good looking as the original sadly

Just thinking--a bargain basement Flying V knock off neck would suit this...

nay ideas where I could get one?

have you checked to see if theres any damage to the neck where it was fitted..like did they drill new wholes or anything?

The neck seems to fit perfectly! The only reason I'm thinking of changing is it is purely for looks
