    Agreed Rudi.

    Too many better options out there for a lot less but hey, knock yourself out.:lol:

    Ah.... but OTPG's have an aura of mystique and when replica buyers are told the guitar they are looking at has original OTP's a little damp patch appears at the front of their trousers.

    I know nothing about OTPG's pickups, but I know that Photobucket ruined this thread...

    Cookie, the damp patch only relates to Italian Jobs, not the OTPG PU's. ;) :p :D

    Cheers, Rudi

    A little snippit of my pair these days... I think my sweat must be highly corrosive haha. Reading back through this thread a few pages I completely agree with flameburst who noticed his guitar continuing to open up in tone over the years. I have definitely noticed the same, particularly with the 58

    Your two are really looking the part Jonny! You should bottle that sweat.

    I'm REALLY into the idea of a '54.

    Haha. You'd love the 54. Was my clear fav for a long time but its a close call these days. I play differently on them... 54 makes me want to play aggressive and messy, the 58 sweeter and more precise. Weird that but my friend said the same when we jammed with the two the other day

    They're both wonderful! Can I ask how long you have them, how long it took before the greening started and how often you play them? They've aged convincingly...

    Thanks man. Had the 54 about 6 years I reckon, and at a guess the 58 about 2.

    I think I noticed the greening starting on the arm after about a year and a half.

    This is a very approx guess but I reckon they get about 4 hours each a week on average. Playing at home doesn't add much age to them, but gigging and jams where there is more energy, sweat etc seem to do it, especially in the hot summer months. I also never wipe them down... Maybe I should

    Depends on what you like. I like the greening because it shows the guitar is loved. I don’t have good sweat unfortunately ;)
