Wow guys, that is pretty cheap!

I will investigate further.

In the meantime, we have a surprisingly clear day, so I managed to take some more closeups...so here we go...

That's a nice Jazzmaster you have there, sir. It took me a year or two of being on this forum to get my head round what all the fuss is about regarding vintage tort. Now if anyone asks, this thread should make it clear.

Thanks for getting the J-50 in there. I love those guitars, and yours looks perfect.

Honestly, the whole group is outstanding.

Here's a question - if the flood waters were rising and you could only grab one and get to safety, which would it be?

it is a tough question as I live on the third floor :D


but hand on heart it would be the Les Paul...it is by far the hardest and most expensive one to replace :)
