... on the 'bay. This interests me because it looks to be an X175 or X145 Phoenix, but it has a hard tail, and neither of those I've mentioned was a hardtail...

I'm certainly not paying US$75 for a well munted body that needs every hole filled and re-drilled in addition to finishing it; less postage and I might consider it, but ... interesting.

I'm not sure what's going on with the neck mounting screw holes. I've seen necks with various "extra" holes to accommodate new bodies, but this is a whole new level of stupidity.

Could this be a "filled in" trem body?

It's a Phoenix X140W! and yeah; it's a mess!

I'm pretty sure that those string-through ferrules were hammered in by a blind monkey with it's feet...
