That's pretty cool! And yeah, I think my '68 looks pretty sweet too.
Thanks for the up-to-date Gibson info. And might I add - you're a very good writer! There are so few of us...
Heh, thanks for the compliment. I try. Cheers.
Here is my 54 RI Stratocaster.:
Wow! The first thought that came to me was "tone." Beautiful. Back in the early 70s I had a Gretsch Tennessean - bought used, but it was excellent.
Beautiful and mean, all at once. Take care of it.
I haven't been on this forum in quite a while, so here is a quick update on some gear.
I was going to make a Steinberger style headless, but changed my mind and ended up with this:
Then a Jazzmaster out of the same plank of Sapele:
Next a Music Man style with a Korina back and flame maple top:
And finally, a trade possibility came up, I offered and he accepted. I traded a PRS CE24 for a PRS NF3 Korina. These narrowfield pickups sound really good, and it's a strat killer with all the in between tones and no single coil noise!
Wear marks are not to be avoided:
QUOTE="x_25, post: 2253093, member: 30723"]This is the guitar I am working on fixing at the moment. Don't know much about it. It seems to be from the mid 60's and made in Japan. I also have a Fender Squire Strat. Nothing special, but then again, I am a drummer and not a guitarist.
You're a musician, and one more versatile than me, since I can't play drums. More power to you mate.
Salt and Pepper
Looks pretty damn good to me.
Thank you. They are both CS reissues with a modern Telecaster wiring scheme and fret radius. On the left is a '63 Telecaster, and right a '51 "Nocaster."

Very sweet. Always love that burst on a Tele ever since seeing it on a Clapton record.
I gotta get another Tele. I'm really into two-pickup guitars, and PAFs have their limits.
My first foray into the world of electric guitars.
A modern reproduction of the '66 Epiphone Wilshire with Tremotone and a portable Pignose amp. Went into the store looking for an archtop hollowbody and walked out with this little beauty. It does have an agravating fret buzz on the E string so I'm going to bring it back in to have it set up properly. Hopefully they can remedy that.
