    My 1952 altered and tortured Goldtop

    I'm going to get the work done then decide whether I go Goldtop or Burst of any kind. I think it has some odd looking grain Which I don't like hiding under gold, but I don't know yet.

    My 1952 altered and tortured Goldtop

    My guitar was seen today, by Ryan in LA area and I guess I am going to take action on what needs to be done. I was told, essentially my '52 was converted to a '57, when Milt Owens worked on it in 1967. My own choice was to restore as much as possible to a 1952, or take the 57 conversion...

    I for one, will always be disgusted by Liars who sell things deceptively, but also, sometines the seller themselves was deceived or just not paying enough attention, at the time they sell something. That would not relieve a seller of the responsibility to make it right. especially, in what...

    My 1952 altered and tortured Goldtop

    After some research and looking at my guitar I am ready to say it probably was an all gold model. (EDIT: 1/19/2020 Changed my mind. Neely was probably right. No. Too much contradictory info on the dot of the "I" position....) Because of the position of the dot on the "I". and because it...

    Story of My Conversion (52-59)

    Thanks for documenting and sharing that journey! It's quite amazing. How long did the whole thing take after you got Tom Bartlett the guitar? I bet he could really answer my questions. Because mine doesn't have a serial number, I've always assumed it was within the first 6 months of...
