handmade model guitar" is described as a "model" when it uses bona fide guitar parts, albeit those from a basic cheap Encore Strat copy. My guess is that it doesn't actually play. It may have been intended to be a playable instrument, but perhaps the maker didn't realise about one of a number of things, such as correct bridge placement or how to wire it up properly. Or maybe it was intended just as a prop all along. Those volume and tone conrols could be glued on for all I know.
Currently listed on eBay UK with a starting price of £20, which might be OK if you want a few cheap parts although the shipping cost is a bit on the high side.
