I saw that yesterday. Only briefly though, as I suddenly felt an overwhelming need to hold my head in my hands... Shocked

I love Music Man instruments, and my Westies of course, but this looks like it belongs in the wonderful world of Beetlejuice. geek

And for that much money I at least want some electronics dammit!

Like Adey says, I think it belongs in the wonderful world of wood-burner - put the poor thing out of its misery!

Very sad and unfortunate circumstance, but still not firewood. In the right hands something could be done but the price of rebuilding it... The result would need to be phenomenal for the value to match the cost. It would have to be a labor of love.
