    bit more than "minor" I would say... Good side is you would never have to be "careful" with it and worry about dings or anything.... If the neck is solid, would make a good beater to just play around with.... and honestly, it could probably be fixed by using some type of epoxy to "make" a new pocket there...

    LOLLOLOLLO!

    My favorite is when people accidentally upload the wrong photo. There was one in my area where someone had a picture of a dead snake with an ad for "Guitar brand new with case amp accessories. Paid 600 asking 450".

    What? 3 of the four neck screws are mint, and the other one just has minor cosmetic issues. Still totally functional.

    (I'm going to list it as "minty fresh")

    I'm wondering how the body broke in that way in the first place.

    As long as that exposed screw is a tone screw it should be fine.

    Is this one of those situations where there's an inverse ratio between personal impression and the amount of alcohol consumed? Such as when you get to the bar and size up the opposite sex as mostly 5-6 out of 10 in appeal, but at 1:30, near last call, when all of the 5-6s have been paired up, the alcohol in your blood, still fighting to find it's way to your liver, sways your brain into thinking 3 is 9. Maybe this guy posted this ad at 3am when his liver was still fighting the overload of booze, decided that B.C. Rich piece of crap just had to go, looked at the damage and thought 9 level of damage was only about a 3.
