It's weird to have that Chinese rosewood neck on it. 1940's meet 2020.
It's ebony but I agree.
Wha, wha, what!!?
Whatever. You've got something cool there.
This is right up my alley. Cool get!
The B string was dead and would not ring out open even after messing around with the nut a little bit but that had to be the cheapest nut I ever saw. I went and got a new nut for it today and it made a huge difference. Might be putting a new pick up in it tomorrow or the day after even though the one in it now sounds pretty good.
Local guy listed a new in box SD Hot Tele pickup for $25 So I’m supposed to pick up that today after work. The pickup that’s in it sounds really good but for 25 bucks I’ll go for the Seymour Duncan every time.
A punker. Love it..
Nice find Lonn. Glad you found it.
That's a really cool guitar in so many ways.
I really like it!
Is it tone wool?
It's those that think htat having fine steel wool within a linear mile of an open guitar pickup will cause the pickup to be shorted and never work again...even if the neck is off of the guitar and the body with all of it's electric parts are in a completely different state.
I would like to not use steel wool. Everyone praises those scotch brite type pads bit I’ve had absolutely zero success with those. I generally take the neck off the guitar before I do it but sometimes I get lazy and I just tape over the pick ups. You’ll never find a guitar of mine with iron filings on it that’s for sure.
So, the neck screw...or was that bolt.....went right through the fret board. Well, that could make this guitar worth millions.
I did something similar to a replacement neck on one of my Strats. I went right through to the front on one of the machine head fixing screws......oh yeah, doh !!
But the guys in my band reckon that in my dreams when I become an internationally known guitar hero........and Fender want to make a signature guitar for me.......they will have to drill through in the same way.......not only to make it “authentic” but to make it “sound right”.......yeah. And my original guitar will be worth a fortune.
So, don’t be toooooo quick to fill in that hole....!!!!
I love it. Really cool.
You lucky dog. Reverb, eBay, FB marketplace, nothing comes close to walking in a pawn shop and spotting something with potential hanging on the wall. Good for you man. That made me happy
I would guess it was the drill bit used for the pilot holes in the neck heel.
