If it's original, then a respray wouldn't be the end of the world, but that's way expensive and I suspect it's got new p'ups and that bridge ain't OEM!! IMHO, it's too expensive for what it is...

The pups may be OK, but that bridge is a scary overkill on a guitar like this!

What bridge is that? It looks Kahler-like but I don't recognize it.

And look at the position of the string lock.

I'd pass. Although Raider's are rare, this one is modded to the extreme. Pricey, too.

...why do I like the look of it? Neutral Way too expensive for sure though.

Hi all,

thanks for the advices.
I asked the seller about the paint job, seems some local paintbrush hero did the job.

But you are right, the thing has been too much modified and is slightly overprized.

Have a look at the 3rd pic down; that's where the Bendmaster FT stringlock sits on my Spectrum LX....

Hard to tell for sure, but it looks like it might be a Washburn Wonderbar. Worth buying to part out, maybe, if you can get a replacement Bendmaster.
