Nicely grained, but could do with being refinished. Ideal for sending to @Andyjr1515 for a project bass.

Needs much more than a refinish, clearly home made and cut out by hand, all surfaces and horns uneven. Quite a lot of time needed to true it all up, would need a real enthusiast who has time on their hands....

Looks like it might've been a bought blank which then had the routing done with a hammer & chisel.

Both horns look as if they have been cut out with a blunt axe, even a bought blank would have a better contour (IMHO)

Why has a channel been routed for the grounding wire, rather than drilled?!

You usually need quite a long drill to get the right angle and given the rest of the corpse ( could not use the word body) looks as if it has been worked with only rudimentary tools, it may explain the channel ( I prefer to call it a scar) being hacked out.

I still think this body is useable. But only once rotted down and used as a compost to help the growth of a new mahogany tree.

But like just a c*ckcroach it may survive a nucleaur explosion intact?
