Paint peeling and strippers my favorite pastimes.
Will the pics ever arrive?
Here are a few snaps of my 7okai Springy after it was stolen.
That looks like one hell of a guitar. I bet you miss it.
Here is a giraffe playing guitar. Original neck I believe.
ha. very good.
Sorry guys looks like this guitar didn't make it all the way. Better luck next time !
United Airlines changed it's branding??
No they only changed the neck for an Epi
OK, totally unrelated - here's a dancing cheese!
No no no, United would have just smashed it. That has to be Ryanair; OP didn't pay the hidden fee for checking in a guitar or other such nonsense.
Here are the pics. I also have a '59 neck with no frets. I'm going to be selling them both. Any thoughts on value would be great
Were the plastics replaced when the neck was? The color of the guard and placement of the screwholes are much later than 59.
The photos above are great, but I think the experts here will need some good photos of under the guard - both the electronics and pickups, and the cavity routings - to be of much use in helping with valuation.
Interesting going from 'I've no intention of parting with it' to 'I'm going to be selling them both' between posts.... what's the original colour on that body, I'm guessing shoreline... the laquer is amazingly
Unchecked for a 50's strat...
Yellowed (aged lacquer) Sonic Blue I think (Sonic Blue was mentioned as the colour). More obvious where the forearm wear is....
Could just be years of tobacco smoke turned it yellow!!
Beat me to it @Mr C I was going to post exactly the same thing. No point repeating it..
You could be right their, my first through was olly white.... it almost looks like an old poly finish...
Here's where I mean. Definitely looks Sonic....
The guitar is stamped "SON BLU" under the pickguard. I am the second owner of the guitar. My step father bought the guitar new in 1960. As far as pictures of the inside, I will be taking them when I sell it. The pickguard is original, no extra screw holes. The pots have been dated to 1959. The serial number is: 44610. There is no question as to the authenticity of the guitar on the whole. I'm not asking for an exact signed appraisal. I'm asking for what forum members would think I could get based on what I have said.
I had no intention of selling however life dictates reality. It's been a very very difficult decision
