So I’ve got this old Epiphone I found under a house the other week. A g310, so bolt on.
Body and shit is all there and looks good - aside from the wiring cuz it’s all parts bin and my iron is pretty had it - but.
The neck on it is a proper fucken banana.

I’ve loosened the truss right off to see what it does.
Is this sorta thing curable (for a fly by the seat of my pants type hack) or just get rid of the thing?

I think, fully sorted, one of those bad boys would fetch almost $100.




























Probably bin it.

Anything is fixable, it's a question if it being cost effective. You can probably score a neck off eBay or somewhere that would fit. Or build one, it's not that difficult.

It might all be too hard basket though. Depends what you want to put in, and what you want out of it.

Put it back under the house. Probably be an interesting conversation starter with potential buyers when you go to sell, the look on their faces when they realise the patio has been dug up a few times

Because I want to find out if it works.

For anyone.

Ever.

Fucking lol. I would but it wasn’t my house.

Hmm. Ok.
It’s about as twisted as my sense of humour so I’m unsure if it’ll straighten. Worth a punt.
