Yet another project!

Tanglewood guitar
Yet another eBay win (£30) for a renovation project! Here's how the seller described it:
Guitar project Tanglewood strat copy for spares or repair good neck and hardware body badly damaged
Despite the lack of punctuation, the implication is that the neck is straight (I do hope so!) and the hardware is all in good working order. As to what "Body damaged" means, I'm not so sure. Is it just damage to the finish as can be seen in the photo, or are there any serious cracks in the body. If it's the former, it'll be another strip and re-finish job, but if the body is seriously knackered then I'll need to cast it aside in favour of a replacement. Only one way to find out, and that is to wait and see, but here's hoping I got a bargain for 30 quid.
