Hello, I recently pulled the trigger on a custom made stratocaster style 3/4 body tenor guitar with 4 strings. However, when I received it, it turned out to be in pretty rough shape, with some questionable craftsmanship. The builder said he had been building them for 40 years. However, this particular model almost seems to be someone's first try. The following are pictures highlighting some of the flaws of the make, but more importantly when plugged in the guitar is extremely muddy, even if i turn the lows and mids all the way down to zero, and the gain to just under 1, with the tone nob all the way up, it sounds muddy and toneless. There are also strings/frets/notes that are hardly audible while others that are too loud. Some of the frets are also jutting out of the fingerboard and are prickly and rough. The pickups also have weird wrinkly surfaces for some reason. I'm thinking about replacing the neck (ive contacted some tenor guitar luther's who may have something available, while also replacing the pickguard and pickups with the bridge to boot. Any Suggestions?
