    I have always liked the look of that guitar.
    Maybe I'll come hear it next time you're in the NE USA.

    The wood appointments are very nice. The Tarbacks on your guitar have really captured you! They must have some kind of soul.

    As for finding gold screws for a Gibson, I never thought of that, but I like the idea. Stew Mac or somewhere else on the internet must have them. My Agent 99 is not a vintage guitar and never will be, so, I would not hesitate to mod her if it became necessary.

    I have Dan Erlewine's book "Guitar Repair Guide". I bought it years ago and I'm glad I did. I would never have thought that lighter fluid would be a good cleaner for any guitar surface.

    I need Gibson pickguard/plates gold screws, the size is #3 x 3/8" but the top of Gibson screws is larger
