  • NGD!! El D

    I was watching this guy on craigslist trying to sell this guitar. Started at 120$, then 100, then 80, 60, 50, and when he hit 40$, I called him up. Now, this will mostly be used as base for modding. Neck is straight, the guitar's a bit on the heavy side. The pickups work, but since there is no nut, i didn't have a chance to play it to see how it sounds. Please excuse the lack of photographic skills.





    The insides are dirty!

    Beware....





    The TUNERS FROM HELL!!




    Any suggestions on mods? I already have a set of GFS locking tuners, and I'm thinking of having a weird pickup combo, something like single coil at the bridge, p-90 in the neck. What kind of nut should I get?

          Excellent score I would say on a Japanese classic. Those were made in the same factory as the old Univox I've been told. Personally, I would just string it up (order a precut nut off Ebay Parts and Accessories) and see how it sounds as is. I had an ElDegas Tele once that sounded very, very nice (much better than the cheapy contemporary Squire/Fenders) with very low action. But the strings came in very low to the body and I hated the feel, so I unloaded it. One contributer used to hoard those things.

          Keep us posted!!!

              I have no idea. From the reviews I'm reading now about 70s/80s el degas strat copies, the body *should* be ash. I'm really tempted to strip it.. we'll see what happens.

                Looks more like a Kramer clone than Fender. And the fretboard looks quite dark for Rosewood and looks more like Ebony.
                Cool guitar for $40 regardless of make. Congrats.

                  Given the style of the instrument its probably a Korean made instrument, as El Degas switched to Korean production at some point in the mid-late '80s.

                        new tuners, new pots, new nut.
                        at least give the pickups a try before you junk 'em.
                        i'd probably strip all the paint off of the neck too, but mask off the front of the head stock. that finish looks alllll kinds of sticky.

                            Well the neck isn't sticky at all. I just don't dig the red. I hope to find some nice wood underneath! I'll probably find some ugly stuff though haha

                            Oh, and the bridge isn't crooked. It's just that I took off the pickguard and it was hanging.
