Hey, I just got an ion and the front banjo is stripped out to the point where i dont think i will be able to retap it. The thing is I got it with no box or anything and the body has been sanded and repainted and the frame has been stripped of its black powdercoat. I don't think i can send it in cuz its been "altered" or w/e but is their anything i can do? Thanks for the help in advance.
If the threads are stripped try to get the remainder of them out of the body. Then simply buy a qev to replace it or just buy another banjo (I think the replacement banjos are only a few bucks anyways).
