Sounds like you just wanted something that's ready to play. I can understand that. Me, I'd probably put some time into it. I like messin' around with git-fiddles. I stock stuff (pots, caps, vintage wire, switches, strings, etc.) so it's no big deal. Push come to shove, I can wind some pickups myself and save some green. It's a pain, 'cause I don't do it all the time, but worth it in the long run.

I can understand polishing frets and a setup.  But replacing the pots and the pickups right of the bat, might as well spend a couple hundred more for a guitar with no issues.  I think the kid spilled a coke or something on that guitar....
