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

    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.

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

    Under a G? If you don't buy it I will!

    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!
