LeadFinger this storys for you,back in the late 70s,( im 56 now )my dad traded a rust free Black 57/chevy hardtop for a 72 Monte Carlo.he got this 57 from a friend who had came from the southern states and it was stock and rust free.rare for Oregon.now its original paint was gettin dull and these wernt comanding the prices they are now.the Monte was a metal flake green,black Viynal top,crager ss ect but even then i was like WTF.Nooooooooo.not that it was a bad car its just the 57 was Special.so,its not that what that dude wants to trade the guy for the JR is bad or all new guitars are bad its just the JR is that 57/Chevy that got traded off never to be seen again.

JohnnyGoo I remember when they were just old used cars. My SS396 was just a 9 year old car with a worn out front end and bad valves. The '57 Chebbies were already classics -- but only the 2-door ones. You could get 4-doors all day for chump change. There was one in the junk yard my brother worked at! Just sitting there being scavenged for parts.

Does that mean that every member has to chip in with comments, some of which are barely relevant to the instrument in question?

When it comes to regrets we all have them, and not just in relation to guitars sold. I mean if I'd only has the sense to shag that hot girl at the school disco when I was 16 and had the chance... :facepalm: ... and if I'd done things differently would I still be married? :dunno: Still, I don't feel the need to air all my errors of judgement in this thread - because they aren't relevant.

Well guys I decided to keep it in the end and I'm now trying to put it back to era standard. It's just a pain in the ass trying to find a genuine or aged scratch plate. The search goes on.


Thank god..
The Mojoaxe link I posted for ya has exactly what you need!:thumb:
He makes pickguards that are virtually indistinguishable from the real deal..
