:-* :-* :-*

she's a 1972, and oh she really SCREAMS. it's much lighter than my '64 and '61/'65 jazzies. the pickups are so clear as on any other too... impressive.
i think it has .09s or so on... man she'll improve once i put them .11s on 'er!

...didn't anyone suspect a few days ago when i asked about "custom colors"?!
HA! you DON'T know me!!!
:D

dunno much about it. i got it from the same guy i got the BroncoBlaster last year... he's somehow letting go of some how his collection.
he took me to his car, opened the trunk and there was an original '74 Orange OR120 head in there! FUCK ME... i have a lonely '74 orange 4x12 here.
DAMN.
but i don't have the $1500 he wants for it.
i'll need to sell more stuff.

BUY MY SHIT PEOPLE!!! heh...

ok i'll take the guard off now. i sure hope for no ugly surprises... *gulp*

note how the shielding is no longer 3D/"bathtub" shaped like the ones in the 60s!

Image
the pickguard has shrunk quite a bit...

1966 pots (nothing unusual, but wow... i mean for 1972, still impressive!). oh and with a bit of brute force i was able to pull the trem arm out. and straighten it a bit. oh man i like this. sounds KILLER thru the green sovtek muff!!!

Pat. ;D

Lordy! That's lovely! Olympic white aged into banana pudding is my favourite fender "colour".

I am burning with jealousy.
