My '57 Special. Greg will recognize this one, he brought it back from the dead. I bought it with a broken headstock and a horrible refinish. Had it shipped straight to Greg. It's 7 lbs 3 oz. Absolutely fantastic guitar.

I bought this 1956 TV last year through Heritage Auctions. It was advertised as a 2007 aged Reissue model, but when I looked at features such as the tailpiece position, knob positions, frets, fret markers, etc, I knew it was the real deal. Full-size photos were available on the HA webpage for a full month prior to the online live auction and I thought for sure that at some point the auction description would be corrected, but it wasn't. Apparently I'm the only person who recognized it for what it was so I ended up winning the auction at a Reissue price. Sometimes, good deals are right under our noses.

Mine, a 1956 that's been ridden hard and put away wet. I foolishly sold it a few years ago but luckily got it back last year.
