    This was my guitar and if finances were different I'd have bought it right back immediately. I also think it was a massive error to take out those WCR pickups. Hey, we all have our own tastes and maybe he wanted a real vintage PAF type of experience but that guitar with those WCR's was a monster. A true monster and putting in real polite very low wind PAF's has me puzzled.

    Again...its none of my business at all but you don't put a mustache on Mona Lisa thinking it'll serve your purposes better LOL.

    Best of luck to the seller and new owner. Anyone wants to know more just shoot me a PM. You won't be disappointed with the guitar, that I can assure you. I've had a lot of guitars, some very old ones, top/top replicas....and this DJ Barfly was my very, very best guitar.

    I hope the WCR pickups also came with the guitar. I spent a lot of time fine tuning that guitar and went thru a number of pickup sets until settling on the Wagners. It really was a great match and killer sounding guitar when it left me.

    Hi Mark! (Clint from Ma.)
    I 2nd that on these WCR humbuckers, the ones in the 58 plaintop I bought from your shop are dynamite, middle position especially.
    Thanks again

    its super pretty. The dings in the front don't look like mojo though. Too uniform. For me, I have to be able to imagine what happened to a guitar to get the mojo. If I can't imagine the "natural play wear" of a relic, then I immediately remember someone beat on it with something. Just my 2 cents though.
