Great to see her all dressed up!
Very nice guitar :)
Looks great! Is the vibrola from Crazy Parts?
Yes, that’s the one.
Great job with this one. How does it sound?
Sounds very nice! Nice mids and sweet top end, slightly less bright than my Derek Trucks (which has late 1960s T-Tops installed).
looks great glad you kept the battle scars.
I wouldn’t want it any other way!
Very nice restoration, congratulations,
You can screw the low thumwheel post using two bolts .
Hope you're enjoying some time to bond with it.
Oh, plenty of time! Only one day at work this week. The only problem is that both my wife and kids are at home as well, so I can’t really turn it up...
Great work on restoring that one! Have fun playing it!
Remove the modern knobs ans install a set with smooth top like the Original vintage SG
+ heavy knurled Switchcraft washer, Historic switch tip.
By and by the idea is to collect genuine vintage parts. Right now I have used what I could get to put together a working guitar. In the current situation (temporarily laid off from work because of the corona thing...) I’m not willing (or able...) to spend the money.
That guitar looks killer just as it sits now. Hopefully you're back to work soon. Crazy times....
Crazy indeed. Spent the day today making a bench for my garden out of an old bed...
You can slightly age the vibrola for an authentic look.
I have been thinking about it. I am also considering buying an actual vintage one at one point. We'll see. This guitar is a long term project, really. I just wanted to make it into a playable instrument at first, and in time I'll hopefully find genuine vintage parts for it.
Great looking guitar. I wouldn't change a thing. If I may inquire. How did you find it?
