    This thread should be closed, it causes too much damage. And GAS ain't cheap either.

    I bought that case from Gregor Hilden a while back:

    He at one time was my biggest supplier from the East.
    At the moment it's not for sale.

    ...I had a forum members R4 in hand on Saturday.It has the "30 over 60" neck profile.THAT is a great neck profile.Not too thick and not too thin and has the softer shoulders on it.

    Find a R with that neck profile and I think you'll love it.:dude:

    Very late 1959 pot markings

    [​IMG]

    Not a great photo but the number reads 1345950, I'm sure most people will know, but just in case ,134 is the makers [Centralab] number ; 59 is the year of manufacture ;50 is the 50th week of the year of manufacture.

    Awesome thread!
    Here's my contribution.
    I took these pics to try and show the roll marks on 50's trussrod covers. This cover is on a '57 goldotop...

    Hello Sgt P, I only had the pots in my possession for a short time and didn't measure.I must admit this earth-loop wire looks to be thicker than the norm,which
    on others that I've measured has been 0.037''.Thats,near enough, 20SWG this side of the pond but 19AWG in USA .

    The pots were purchased from a well known ,respected and trusted US
    dealer.There is no doubt that the pots are the real deal But that wire does look a little ''iffy''.
