re-shaped and painted headstock, non-original tuners, missing pickguard...and fair condition, which raises even more red flags :(

Was looking at my phone with the brightness down as I put my kids to bed. Knew there must be something amiss, but thought worth posting anyway.

I think it is still worth it, thanks for the heads up Tim.

A Stingraysh-on-a-budget at this price point? Someone please correct me, but I have never heard of.

Looks like the original nut has been filed for right handed stringing. Fortunately it doesn't have a right handed strap button hole.

I had been looking at that online. Anything marked FAIR condition at GC is indeed a big red flag.
I wonder if the electronics have been messed with, it looks like the battery cover is no longer there.
