    The bridge appears to be a TonePros System II, and it's obviously missing the truss rod cover, but besides that it looks legit.

    Wasn't looking to buy another guitar, but I can get it for under a grand.

    Looks right (and neglected, poor thing). The top reminds me of the 98 CU 24 I had. I assume it's a non 10?

    I wouldn't. The winged tuners aren't all pointing in the same direction. :wink:

    Yeah - like this group is going to tell you not to buy something!

    As bad as I really want to get it I just can't. Going through a divorce right now which is depleting my funds.

    Sucks about the divorce brother...

    For what it's worth, the '96 CU22 guitars are considered to be among the best playing/sounding Customs out there by many people.

    Someone needs to snatch this up!!!

    Thanks Jon!

    I know it would be a great pickup at a steal of a price, but don't think I can swing it.

    Sorry guys, I'm picking this baby up tomorrow. I found this thread just by accident. Great price. Just need to order a new truss rod plate for about $8 and replace the volume pot. Looking forward to this one!
