This has to be the first time that I've used loose change in my car to help me buy a guitar

Finish is chipping off all over the neck and a little bit on the body, action is super high, frets are well worn, but I'm not gonna do a goddamn thing other than try and lower the action. I don't even plan on changing the strings.

Acoustic tone sounds awesome, but I don't have an amp to plug it into here, so hopefully the electronics work.

Best case, I've got a cool bass. Worst case, I've got something cool to hang on my wall. I don't see how I can lose with this one.

PICS!:

Looks similar to a red "electra"(not to be confused with "elecktra") I had years ago...though I paid $250 for mine with case and sold it on ebay for close to $400 iirc.

Found another one on ebay. Looks like I came out ahead on this one. Gonna shim the neck and string it properly today,
