wouldnt bother me either was just curious , wonder if its a social security number or something ?
We used to put our soclals on anything im
We used to put our socials on anything that was really important. I think I even put it on my bicycle when I was young thinking if it was stolen, they'd track to me and give it back. What a turn of events it all turned out to be....I hesitated to give it out in the ER...
Is that a number that you put on the neck plate in case it’s stolen?
Hope of it’s his SSN that he deletes the picture. Who knows who’s lurking about on the forum.
Not sure im canadian and I'm guessing its some number used by Americans..because it doesn't match up with driver license or socials here
No someone else did before me
This is the Natural Checking on my 2015 AVRI 56’. I bought it from an person which lived up north of me. Could have been transferred in a trunk then brought into the house in the winter months. As you can see there is quite a bit.
Yeah thats an ash body...my ash body i put in freezer went that way
Probably a drivers license number - Social Security numbers aren't alphanumeric.
Back in the 60s & 70s many of us used to engrave our license # on things in case of theft.
Heres how an original 61 alder body checks naturally. This is the "normal" direction vintage fender custom colors go.
Just wanted to check in on your lacquer. It looks pretty good
I always thought checks were like:
Otherwise they're just lines right??
Almost every 80s AV Strat (nitro over poly) that I have seen with a checked finish has been horizontal checking. Very few of those are ash.
I don't know if it's the nitro/poly combo or some other factor (type of finish, heat vs cold, etc etc), but they do normally check in a horizontal manner.
My MIJ Fender has vertical finish checking, i dont know if its alder or basswood, nitro or poly.
Half of my '65 SG is checked vertically and half horizontally..
As artificial relic'ing goes, you are off to a really good start.
I was able to get a similar effect just by throwing the one I had in the deep freeze for a few days...then took in out in the middle of a Texas summer day. Nothing further was really required.
My son just got this recently. '66 Mustang. It has checking running in a lot of directions.
I've never heard of that before, but it makes sense that different woods might expand & contract differently relative to their grain.
Weird I had put it in the freezer and took it outside in July nothing would happen...i had to do the opposite put it outside in the sun for awhile then freezer for only 3 hrs
Texas high humidity, was like 106 outside that day (august). May have had something to do with it. Maybe I just got lucky.
