Ask the seller if he still has the other tuners.
Apparently he bought this as-is for $10 in a thrift shop.
I've been going to every thrift shop, junk store, pawn shop, flea market, swap meet and yard sale for 15 years looking for something like this and zip....
Anyway, I just tested the electronics and EVERYTHING WORKS! The cavities are very clean and all the brass is there. The wiring is untouched, even the little 90 degree terminal ends to ground the plates are still there and soldered to the brass. The mute slug is there too, it was installed upside down, but it was there.
The chrome plates have some pitting, but it's not too bad. The dullness of them is some kind of film that will clean off. I think they'll be very presentable once scrubbed and polished. I'll probably start on that today.
I'm really happy with this. I wish that MM neck was here. I'm going to do like I did the IBM '66 JM, assemble and set it up BEFORE I refinish it. I want to make sure everything is exactly how I want it, and then disassemble it for refin.
More photos are coming as soon as I can them loaded within the next few minutes....
BTW, where did you get that great looking decal?
IIRC, it was an eBay special. It's OK, but not really all that great. The small lettering is very fuzzy. I'm only using the JAGUAR part though, so it will work.
Q. Are we not men?
