i am having it rewired so i will show you in a few days
it is a brass nut that was added later
Ugly refin and various other questions, but since it's been monkeyed with already, you can bring it up to speed in your own terms without feeling like you're messing up a showroom piece. That should be a blast. Enjoy it. Hope it plays well.
i know its not the prettiest thing ever but its my guitar and i want it to look like it came out of the custom shop
No neck binding = Junior. Get her restored!
i just had it rewired so here it is. none of the electronics are original but maybe the switch is?
i am gonna refinish her in white and i don't think juniors ever have inlaid logos.
Here's a better view of the inlaid logo
A Junior has only two pots, no?
With that the body cannot be newer than early 1965.
Oops. You’re right, no inlaid logo. But Specials back then had neck binding. Not sure what model that is. ??
And whoever took off the finish really smoothed out those bevels. You should look into getting them re-shaped as well.
That has the same control cavity as my 67' and 69' jrs. Do you see holes in the top where the guard was originally screwed in? My guess is that it is a late 65 or 66.
That would be surprising to me. Your control cavities should look more like this: (Notice the wide route) They started making them like this sometime in 1965.
Here are 3 1967 Specials on Reverb that show the same route:
So without the big control route, I'd wager neck was thinned out, hence the loss of binding..
Late '65 and '66 Special would still have the small guard..into '67...and large guard version, starting in '67 had a channel thru the pickups where the small guard would not cover..as well as totally different shaped routes.
My bet is late '64, maybe early '65 that neck was thinned and body sanded...
My 69' has the same logo but its not "inlayed" it is actually raised up from the headstock face like a big ass sticker.
Yeah..that was a funky decision for sure...I've seen ones that were nearer to flush, and ones that weren't..what are the pot codes of that one of yours? That logo is 100% a 70 feature...
Ill have to dig them out of my junk bin lol trying to get the knobs off of them the shafts pulled right out.... Turns out someone glued them onto the pots.... Its definitely a 69' 3 piece neck, one piece body stamped sn no made in USA
