Kim; you have too many parts... I'm letting you know that I'm accepting donations for my R-4 GT, R-7 Custom and R-0 Std. You can use me as a tax deduction along with your new baby..
BTW, is that Custom case for sale..
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 love the look of 50's Les's. Just wish I liked the necks!
...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.
Very late 1959 pot markings
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.
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...
Man I wish I had some of those...
Great Pic, Singlecut54 What does the earth wire measure on those?
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 .
That's exactly what I was thinking.
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''.
