Sweet Deluxeness.

I just procured a 1980 Deluxe tobacco burst. All original. Slight separation in the pieces on the top. I think putting a little fret doctor in there with a syringe and letting it soak should fix it, though I doubt it affects the tone at all.

Finally, my lust for a Deluxe is over. Now I have to chomp at the bit and wait for it to be delivered.

I think I'll name her "Carmella." She'll be the younger sister to my '78 Standard, "Rosetta."

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

God, I know. I can't believe I got it for $1700. I'm still friggin' dumbfounded.

Now to sell my '79 Rickenbacker 450 / 12 to offset the purchase...

That's a deal..... I have a 1980 Deluxe too. They must have made a lot that year, I see more 80's than any other year.

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

Too bad most people alter them. My friend has an '80 deluxe that was routed for full humbuckers. Just buy a Standard; leave the poor minis alone!

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

I've seen more than a few. There's slight separation at the neck tone knob, but I'm going to take a syringe filled with Fret Doctor and squeeze a good bit in there and allow the wood to soak it up. Should fix a bit of the shrinkage.

P90s make a Pro Deluxe. Yoko Ono sounds like she's infected with small island disease (I know, I have it too). Minis sound like heaven.

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

I love an LP with P90s, but I'm not going to modify a perfectly fine Deluxe to satisfy an urge for another model. This is why we have so many screwed up instruments. Someone gets the bright idea to change this or change that, next thing you know, you've got a swimming pool route and a $50 chunk of old wood.

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

What the hell are you talking about?!? You don't route anything to install p90s in a Deluxe. The routes are the same damn size as the minis. They fit right in and can be returned to stock lickety split.

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

Anyway, I was simply making a counterpoint to that other dude's statement. Not telling you what you should do with your guitar. Enjoy your Deluxe.

This just occurred to me, Townsend's #5 was a 3 piece wine Red Deluxe, so there's one you probably have seen.

Not sure about the other Deluxes he owned.

I'm not a fan of tobacco bursts, but I like the finish on the back.

Re: Sweet Deluxeness.

Tobacco is my favorite burst followed by desert and honey. I have two ES-335 CRRs which are Tobacco bursts.

ES-335 CRRs came stock with Dirty Fingers pickups. They're roughly the same output as a 500T. The neat thing about original dirty fingers is that all 12 pole pieces are adjustable. The CRR came factory coil tapped.

I brought the entire pickup down about flush with the surrounds to tame it a bit, then on the coil which remains active when you tap them, I brought the pole pieces up a bit to maintain the volume.

Only 300 CRRs and the sister instrument, CRS ES-335s were made. All of which were produced in '79. They're my main axe. They're good for anything you can imagine. With the coil tap, brass nut, yet airy 335 quality, you can reach anything from a nearly telecastery twang, a sweet smooth jazz tone or a crunchy rockin' blues bite.

They're my most expressive and versatile guitar and there's almost nothing that would tempt me to get rid of either of them.
