  3. Early Daytona and T-51 production used ash for the bodies that was often pretty heavy, and the early production also used Sperzel locking tuners (which I like). Later guitars have alder bodies and different tuners. Some people don't like the Wilkinson tremolos but I don't have an issue with them, though the 'push in' (versus threaded) tremolo bars are difficult to find. I also like the flat fingerboard radius alot better than a vintage style F*nder neck.

  5. Nice find! I am surprised there was no finish yellowing once the tape came off -- looks great in plain white, IMHO. I was going to say, if you have occasion to remove the neck you'd also be able to see if the neck had been redrilled for the 'narrow' neck plate (or not).
  6. Ok, tell us what is SUPPOSED to be in those boxes! πŸ˜‰
  7. Good eyes, I did not see the broken off screw. Yeah, fuggit, slap a Bigsby on there while you’re at it!

  9. I didn't know Dylan was getting back together....
  10. Dec. 1974, YES touring behind 'Relayer', QUAD sound system, Ahern Fieldhouse, University of Kansas. No seats on the basketball court. I's 14 years old. Awesome!
  11. Believe it or not there were some LPC built in the mid-late β€˜70’s with a Brazilian RW top. http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b4/UfoPilot/LP_rosewood.jpg Yeah, you need some brass hardware to bring the weight up a bit.🀣
  12. I believe the top wood is still maple though it is stained walnut brown. Knobs would date it to @ β€˜78. Is the S/N 7XXX8XXX or 7XXX9? Most likely Built in Michigan. Yes, the Series VII pickups are powerful, at around 16 K ohms.
  13. Here's a jazzburst beauty, bring $$$$ (offer $2k?) https://cartervintage.com/products/hamer-newport-pro-2009
