  1. Yeah. He seemed bitter in my correspondence too. In reply, I welcomed him to call me. He never did. No clue.
  2. I spoke with him earlier, and he said it’s had some routing or repair work near neck pup. I was questioning the two holes(?) in the photo. He’s going to send me better photos, and I’ve a friend out there. If nothing crazy I’ll be good. He didn’t play it much, as he’s a bass player. So, not the one who wore it out. Frets may be gone. Trem, etc. we shall see. Been up a couple months too, so may be something we can’t see. He was, ‘Well take a look, and see if you like it’ on the adulterated area.
  3. Downloaded the app. Seems To be for Facebook etc. How’s it help me post photos here? Think would help to compress the file size? Trying to do a 1.8mb photo upload, and errors.
  4. Ok thanks everyone. I should be more concerned. Jay, I couldn’t upload more photos, getting error msg ‘problem processing uploaded photo’. I’ll look inside, and try that test. I know what your referring. I think I saw Joe Walsh(?) explain his using the same test when choosing guitars. Don’t want a wet noodle for a neck.
  5. Yeah Jeff, I know that’s a heck of a lot. Listing mentions no refunds, and I’d actually like to keep it. Not a lot of these. Get the upper frets leveled, and accept it as it is. However, I understand the value is diminished. So, what amount of reduced value is there?
  6. Photo of heel can’t be posted, but believe me there’s a definite break repair. Trying to post photo of heel
  7. Hey guys!! Got this early Sunburst. Seller disclosed body was busted/repaired, due to jealous girlfriend but NO break to the neck. I got it and can see the heel was also repaired, thus broken along with body. Section of binding in the area replaced (incorrect material), one non-original tuner, and though repair respray finish was pretty good, they used BROWN, instead of the proper red in the burst. Why?!!!! None of these were disclosed. I should also mention the neck angle now, isn’t what it should be, which I believe is due to the repair taking a way a bit of original back angle. Upper frets will also need leveling. Saddles can’t go any lower and action is just ok. Ideally, I’d like it a bit lower. He admits he doesn’t know much and wants to make good. I’d like to keep the guitar, but feel it should be valued less due to the mentioned items. He asked what I think is fair. Cost was close to $1500. What do you all think would be a fair partial refund amount? I’ve an amount in my head, but wonder if too low? Let me know what you’d ask. Thanks! p.s. will try to include photos
  8. Kurt L is an awesome member. He helped me out big time on an Austin find. Handled shipping like a pro. Love that rosewood neck! I’m a bit tempted myself.
  9. Import fees on USA guitar to USA?

    UPDATE... Ok, I received a statement in the mail close to two weeks ago, from UPS for a reduced amount of $40. Appears they removed the dutie(?) fee, and I’m only on the hook for the ‘broker’ fees.
  10. Di Marzio PAF correct bottom plate?

    I’ve seen both in about 1980. Triangular thereafter. Thus, ‘squared’ prior. Yes, 1981 would be ‘triangular’.
  11. Shishkov Holiday SWAG!

    I’d be interested in ordering something. What fits a guy nearly 6 & 1/2 foot tall? To All, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Wish I’d have grabbed some of those glasses too.
  12. Hey Nick! I need to see what I’ve got that may need the case, and or projects. May take a while. I’ll clear out my box ASAP so you can stay in touch. Meanwhile, if Peter has something go for it. Dave
  13. Import fees on USA guitar to USA?

    The seller said he sent the email to the UPS broker as requested, clarifying its origin being USA. I guess I’ll just wait to see if I get an invoice for any fees? I too have never had to pay from other purchases from Canada, or the European countries. EMS was used along with parcel posts, then to USPS. I recall DHL trying once but they dismissed it when I questioned them. Appreciate all your inputs. THANK YOU!!!
