The condition (and color) is amazing. Perfect weight and should be a freight train with that P-90. Congrats!

Beautiful color, I’m going to finishing one in the next few months and I’ll be using yours for a color reference. I love it!

Yep When I saw the color (and condition), it was love at 1st sight. Lots of red left in the burst. I like'em like that.

Thanks Mike. I'm gonna yank the frets and put in some 6105s and play it.

You know, I always used to do that, but somehow I've found a way to love the "banjo" frets. Even had one of my Juniors put back from medium jumbos to skinny last year. All because I bought a '57 Junior, but couldn't wait for a refret before I took it out and gigged it. Turns out they've got something about them, and the original frets stayed in...

Gorgeous looking thing you got - congratulations! Right guitar, right weight, nothing not to love.

I put bigger frets on a jr. and a special and regretted it, so back went the smalls.
