Guitar with ultra-scalloped fretboard
Here's another guitar currently with no strings (we seem to be seeing a lot of those at Guitarz recently) and a couple of other issues too. In fairness to the eBay seller, it is listed as a "project" guitar for restoration. However, they also seem to be under the impression that it is a Bartolini bass! This post originates at - beware of those damned scraper blogs!

Well, it's quite evidently not a bass. The two remaining pickups are by Bartolini, but the guitar has the appearance of a one-off custom job. It's like a Stratocaster that has been carved and sculpted to produce this rounded, smooth shape. But, Wow! Did you ever see such extreme fingerboard scalloping before? Note also the left-handed trem.
