like it. Looks like a Paul Klee picture
Supporting the bump.
Natural aging just can't be imitated. (No humble opinion)
My new additions to the gallery. Unfortunately, no LPs.
cool pics ! Is that a Telecaster Custom ? What year is she ? The checking looks like nitro, which would be strange for ´70´s Fenders, isn´t it ?
Please show some more pics of this guitar if you don´t mind.
some checking on the back side, along with other dings & dents. Hard to capture it all without "perfect light"
just have to use your imagination.
Thanks! Yeah, it's a '73 Custom and the checking does look a little different than the rest of the guitars in my post above, which are all '60s Gibsons. Here's a link to more pics and a couple of videos...
got reflections of my back yard view , & some checking.
I was just about to ask that too, Deadlyweasel, when I saw your question.
Had a little checking in the sanding sealer of this one after leaving it out on a cold night.
My late '59 double cut "mutt" bad headstock repair and all!!
79 strat the poly one that doesn't check or age naturally.
Doesn´t those OLY white ´s have clear nitro over poly white ?
Looking great , this guitar, congrats !
My understand is that the white fullerplast is under the yellow, and clear poly was sprayed over that. I have seen many 70's strats that have had some form of checking on them, but it takes quite a bit more exposure to the elements to get like this vs. nitro finishes. Of all the 70's strats I have owned, this one has stayed with me for a long while. Its on the heavy side, but has quite a thump for a strat.
1957 which I hot-rodded and refinished in 1977
Been meaning to post these in this thread....my '56 TV Special
