    I could see saving the tailpiece, but that bridge is very pitted where the adjustments are made and it makes contact with the strings. I'd be worried about precision making adjustments and breaking strings :).

    On the other hand, folks pay extra for this sort of thing, don't they! :).

    Looking good!

    The Les Paul cleaned up fairly well. I hit all the shops in North Indy looking for a gold bridge and tailpiece but could only find chrome. There’s a fair amount of Buckle rash on the back but this guitar is rock solid. Looks awesome from a few feet away.

    At the risk of being a grammar ****, I think the word you were looking for was "nathty"

    I would detail the exact meaning, but I think that put me at odds with the forum rules.

    What are you buying those on CL then flipping them back on CL?
    Quick turn over how much did you pocket on the sale?

    Bought these on Facebook marketplace. Sold the LP here without advertising, my rep is well known lol. I didn't get rich on the sale and the buyer gets a good deal. Expect a NGD thread next week I imagine.
