    Yea, that was amazing!

    You know, the finishes they are putting on these newer Bullets is impervious to pure acetone. I found this out trying to clean out the neck pocket of the recent Affinity I rebuilt. That stuff is tough! Acetone did not bother it in the least. I have stripped other paint with acetone so maybe that's the ticket to clean that guitar off.

    BTW, can anybody decipher the ser# I posted that's on this thing?

    OK now this is messed up. This was posted earlier today and was sold within hours. She said it gotta go, someone make me an offer. And I was obsessing over a rattle can Bullet. I usually check these things first thing in the morning. I can't tell what it is but it has a three ply PG.

    If you get it I'll send you a 3 ply white pickguard (loaded or unloaded) for it. I have a smooth set of trapezoid tuners and a stock trem if you need them, too. I'm such an enabler. :D

    Thanks, man. Hopefully it's just another annual pokin' and proddin' at the spinal cord center where I get all my meds and supplies. Oh and they just want to to make sure I ain't shootin' up any of that marijuana dope! VA idiots...

    OK all my Squiers are Indonesian. Is made in China a good or bad thing? Or is it like anything else: depends on the guitar?

    I'd do it. Sucker for hard luck cases.:D I figure as long as the neck is fairly true(as those can get pricey to replace), anything else can be fixed/upgraded.
