    Why a reverse panel on early Fenders

    1966 Guild Duane Eddy DE-500

    Yep - thanks. Also confirmed in the book on vintage Guilds I reviewed tonight that these humbuckers aren’t DeArmonds. They sound great!

    1966 Guild Duane Eddy DE-500

    DeArmond made a lot of different Guild pickups, but I've not been able to find a reference that they made these particular humbuckers.

    Three Wise Bursts - Merry Christmas!

    Not as big as everyone thinks about 1958 guitars. Actually, the necks are very similar medium profile on all 3 Bursts. The 1960 is an early '60 with all '59 features.

    Vintage Red ES Guitars

    Neck is a nice size but not as fat as you might expect on a 1959. Yes to PAFs.

    Vintage Red ES Guitars

    Jimmy Page playing an ES 335

    As mentioned earlier, Clapton's red ES-335 was a 1964 model. :)

    Vintage Blonde ES Guitars

    Hi Werner, yes, this is the "first rack" ES-345, and the varitone ring is indeed black. Unfortunately that flood light was shining right on the ring!
