Picked up this today, original price was set too high, it was priced for one in good condition. I messaged the seller after it sat listed for awhile and offered what I thought was fair price, as it might be a gamble. The seller agreed to a much lower price. I went to pick it up today and the seller even offered it at a further discount due to its condition or should I say appearance. So here she is. She is rough but just needs some love. It was stored at his family's house and the custom paint job was courtesy of his younger brother. He wasn't happy about it and it just sat for years. He stated it was all original and was a nice player. My main concern was if it was original and all there. It is noticeably lighter than my others and in a good way. Turns out it is all original . Missing the back trem cover and 5 way switch knob . She is early 10/6/83 neck...SQ01631 neckplate. I figured if the paint was too damaged and or not there I would repaint it and go from there. Got home, she plays fine, switches need some deoxit but should be good to go. I started cleaning her up and decided to start with a Clorox wipe to get any Virus off of it, if it had any on it. Think I'm gonna call her "Korona". Well as I was giving it a wipe down I noticed the wipe was taking some of the gold paint off(paint pen). So I switched to a Magic Eraser and wallah. Took some elbow grease and time but got it off except the blue on the back. Anyway, here are the pics as I know we all love pictures. Opinions as to how to proceed with the finish are welcomed and opinions as far as leave relic'ed or refinish. Also need my experts out there to tell me about the pick ups. My other 83' CST-50 has the pickups with the square holes in the base. more pics to follow, can only loead 5 at a time.
