    I found a like new SX tele for 120 bucks and I thought "wow"! I was actually almost brand new. It must have been is storage without any case because the pickguard had a plastic covering over it and it was really aged.
    Not sure how old the guitar is though.
    Anyway, the guitar didn't work. So I said 30 bucks and thought about it more and offered 20 bucks. (about 2000 yen) Sold!
    So I took it home and took it apart. Got it to work!
    Here are some pictures of it.

    Thanks dbrian. I put the sales receipt on the guitar because I wanted to let people know that sometimes a good deal like this is hard to believe. Actually it was just under 2000 yen. LOL

    Thanks corn. I got 9's on it now, but i'm going to change the strings to 8's. 9's are just too tough now for me.

    Wow! Definitely the deal of the day, congratulations. It's a beautiful guitar. I'm still kicking myself in the ass for passing up a deal on an SX tele deluxe. I hear they are pretty good quality.

    Thanks. This says custom handmade vintage series. It has the 2 way truss bar. Oh, and the serial number is: 20125776
    Maybe some of you guys know how to read the ser.#. Either way, there's no hum from the pickups, but I'd like to change the toggle switch to a small white one, like on the strats.

    Again, thanks.

    Congrats on a great find and incredible deal! A very nice looking guitar. What turned out to be the problem that prevented it from working originally?

    You know, Mr Yeats, that's why I included the sales receipt. I don't think people would have believe me. But yes, I found 4 good buys on guitars and a bass here. I can buy les paul copies all day for 50 bucks. Next time I'm in the pawnshop, I'll sneak a picture of them.
