A just-a make-a the joke!
This is wrong because I had vintage screws in my lashing and they did not sit flush.
The green comes with age...just like in real life. You should know this, living in Seattle. Fighting the traffic up Sand Point, the damn bridges over the Montlake Cut, the abyss of Green Lake...and then there's "Downtown"...how all logic of addresses and street names suddenly turns to mush...
If nothing else can cause one to turn green...it's trying to drive in Seattle.
God how I miss it. And yeah, it takes a Lashing about 20 years to turn green, just like the originals.
Guess I'm just too serious mined.
I'll join you on that limb. If that thing saw 1959, I am Jimi Hendrix.
Excuse me while I kiss this guy.
Damn, still 10 more years to go...
Well got the guard and it's a match for the lashing guard I've already got, so it's going back lol
And here we all are after reading (or skimming) thru it?
Guess it's a rhetorical question?
Wise move. Sorry it didn't work out for you this time! Will be interesting to see how it's relisted.
This makes me realize I have no business even thinking about getting into vintage classics. My '75 musicmaster bass is as vintage as it's gonna get for this proletariat.
Well needless to say he is contesting the return, Reverb is moving it along in the process, I told them if they want to authenticate it and it comes back as authentic then I'll keep it... needless to say it wouldn't and this should be an open and closed return lol I've purchased over 14k worth of stuff in the last year from CME, so I'm sure they will resolve this fairly quickly.
Ok so I've had a little more time to inspect the guard... compared to a lashing and a callham the one thing I've noticed that's different is the pot spacing, any thoughts? This guard is definitely different then the other 2. The lashing and callham volume knob touches the treble screw this one does not, all the pics I've seen the volume knob almost touches the screw on vintage guitars.
Did you measure the cutout for the bridge?
I think the rule is that you have to need it authenticated by a trusted source. Depending on the outcome, you'll get a refund and it gets destroyed, or you need to keep it.
That's how I thought it worked. And you should take the matter up with Paypal, I don't think Reverb can intervene...
It's actually wider then my other guard, so it's going to be over 25mm... the tell tale sign is the knob placement isn't correct... I took the guard off my guitar just to see if it would fit, and it doesn't even line up with the shield. I paid using reverbs bill pay, so they are in control of it now.... I'll get a refund, not worried, item was not as described so.
Sorry, I thought you used Paypal.
I don't know the exact policies of Reverb, but Paypal is as described above. Hard part would be to find someone to authenticate.
If the cutout is even wider and there is no trace of it being done manually then it's definitely a repro with modern-size bridge cutout. Are you sure about 25mm, I mean the width of the cutout. Should be either around 74mm or 75mm.
The big issue is the holes for the pots are not in the right place, they are way off, I'd have to use it without the shield... basically that the guy won't take it back even though it's supposedly worth more then I paid for it speaks volumes lol reverb has buyer protection, and I contacted them within 2 hours of recieving it. I'm not seeing the return being any issue, supposed to hear back within 48 hours.
What on earth is the "treble screw"?
I assume this screw
