"A punk jazz musician" could be interesting.

that poor thing looks like someone just threw parts at it until some of them stuck.

naw, that's more like "threw random crap at it till something stuck."

I can't get past the ridiculously poor coil winding on that guitar.

commented before I looked at the price tag and now the whole thing is pissing me off
covering up the name plate so people don't realize they bought a 50 dollar tele copy with 10 bucks of scrap metal attached

some of these seem silly but this one seems like fraud

Holy shit. That last one's embarassing. I don't know if I'd call it fraud, though, since it's difficult to imagine anyone buying it for any price, let alone the one they're asking.

There is the "make an offer" option. I'm gonna offer em $35 but with a note that says to just burn it instead of mailing it to me.

$35 is generous. I nearly did the same thing, but I was only gonna offer $20.

Looks like we got a bidding war

The problem is that somebody that knows nothing about gear might think they are buying a cool piece for someone...

"Hey, remember that sweet 2k Guitar you wanted for Christmas? ....well I found one even better!!!"

I like where this bidding war is headed, I will bid 7.35

This is a more affordable steampunk guitar, but it still goes toe to toe with some of the better ones. Check out the genuine pipe/gears+knobs detailing.

:lol: I mean at least that one has the cool Kawai/Teisco trem. I like those. Plus it looks like more effort went into it than that first one.
Apparently there's an Edison model. Does it do guitar battle with the Tesla one? Maybe the Tesla means you won't ever get laid, but owning the Edison could imply that you electrocute small animals for fun.

How come the gears on steampunk shit never mesh together?
