Hi all. It's been a while since I posted. Sold off most of my collection, including 5 of the 6 Os I had. Kept just the ones I played.
i'm looking at a UKII. It's seen better days. Chips a plenty down to the foam. Electrics are in good shape as is the neck and frets. My questions more comes down to repairs and overall sound.
I saw in a previous thread about using Superglue, nail polish, bondo, epoxy, etc. I'm decent at Superglue repairs, but some of the are the size of a quarter. Epoxy might be a better choice. Has anyone actually done fixes on a UKII successfully?
I'm also concerned about that sound of the UKII. All the YouTube vids I find are pretty tinny or so distorted it could be any guitar. What should I expect? Tele-ish, Strat-ish? Something else-ish?

There was one on CL a little down the road from me recently (Utica, I believe) but I see that one is gone as well. Or it could be the one you were looking at. Either way it did look in decent shape and was going for a decent price as well.
