Could anyone be tempted by the fruit in this garden?

Handcrafted? I wonder whether this means that the cheapest and crappiest mass produced components available were screwed together by hand and the headstock was hand shaped with a butter knife.

It's probably an Encore- Googled the 'Guitar Tech' pickup which is from JHS, their distributor, and is standard on their P-type. The shape of the bit of scratchplate above the neck matches too, and can be had, un-mutilated, for a whopping less-than-a-1/3-of-the-price:

But that decent looking, cheap and cheerful but respected beginners brand Encore doesn’t have the unique, ‘handcrafted’ headstock and specially mutilated scratchplate does it. I’d definitely pay more for those unique features wouldn’t you? 😏

Indeed, time is money- and that afternoon in the shed needs paying for!

Biro? Only if you’re confident.
