I bought a pair of MG-I's a year ago to mod and resell. They were down near the jersey shore which isn't too far from me so I went to pick them up.

They were still hooked up, I got to listen to them, they sounded normal, made no erroneous sounds etc... the owner was a nice guy and straight shooter. No problems right?

When I got them home and took the fabric off, the wires were literally 90% off the mylar. The only wires still on were about 5 inches worth right in the middle, with giant hanging spaghetti strings above and below that. I wish I had a picture of what must have been my jaw on the floor. (I think I had sawdust on my chin....)

I still haven't gotten round to fixing them, and when I do it will be a monumental PITA.

I can't tell you what these III's will be like. It is possible they won't be that bad. Still, if it quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, lives near the water like a duck.... if you're really gung ho on them, insist he open them. It's the only way to be sure.

It's still my opinion you're better off with the MMG's in any case, at least for now. Like the crusader told Indiana Jones, "Choose wisely."

It's all about the music...
