    Should I let go of this '55 TV Special I've had for 25 years?

    +1 on sending the Greg and letting him do his magic on the neck only. The body looks sexy as hell!

    9 0643 and 9 0696 "Grainger-Burst" up for auction at Heritage

    Wasn't he on a buying streak the last couple of years? I seem to recall a bunch of Tweets of him showing recent purchases of vintage guitars? And now to dump a bunch?? Non the less, some very cool guitars for sure!

    They are still out there!

    I wish, not that lucky! I would have jumped on any tweed! Nope, a 10 inch. I do however have a '68 PR that I put a 12 inch baffle a speaker! That is a cool combo for sure!

    They are still out there!

    I thought the baffle and grill cloth looked like they had been replced on the PR? Someone on the BF FB page thought they looked straight? Anyone care to weigh in? Yes, I have the original speaker, this a replcement so I cam dime the emp.

    They are still out there!

    These two found their way into my home yesterday. I bought them sight unseen from an estate sale. Both fired up great and give up the BF goods. The PR does have a replaced baffle, but other than that, all the transformers and circuits look great! It was too good of a deal to pass up! Both...

    what humbucker model you would choose for a neck pickup for a telecaster?

    I wonder what the specs of Keef's and JB's are? JB has a CS Nocaster coming out and I think it with a Seymour Duncan in it of some spec?

    Tailpiece moved back on my '55 LP Junior?

    I have owned a number of 50's Juniors, while I can agree that the stud on the treble side was too close on 54-55 Jrs, I'm not sure they sound better? The bushings are shorter, I think 1/2 inch. In some cases, the pieces of wood broke out between the bushing and pup cavity. I can't see your...
