    Waffle backs to Grovers

    Bigsby removal

    I have this 74 SG Special with Gibson Bigsby,which I never use and am thinking of removing. It looks like a stop bar tail will be too far back if I fit one and use the Bigsby screw holes.A ligjtening bolt bridge looks like it will need new post holes. Any ideas how to proceed will be welcome.

    NGD 70's SG Special

    I just got this.The pots are dated 1377325,so 73-74. I was thinking of changing the bridge, mini's to P90's and removing the Bigsby. I'm not so sure now,it sounds great and is so easy to play.

    Will there soon be a glut of old wood for sale?

    The first wave of 50's Les Paul buyers are getting older and might not play any more or need money from their assets. Will we see a sell off as they age and 50's guitars tumbling in price?

    While the current debates on vintage/historic/regular gear are still raging. I just wanted to say I would give up all my guitars and play a Squier in trade for just a little talent.

    The waffle backs on my Custom feel a little vague.They hold tune,but I'd like something tighter.Maybe its just wear. Can they be rebuilt or is it just replaced?

    NGD 1970 Custom with 69 features.Pic Heavy.

    Bit strange this.Yellowed up and checked to hell.69 serial number 852xxx (hard to make out,but readable at the right angle),no "Made in USA" stamp,no volute,one piece body and the only pot I can make out reads 1377010 . The important thing is it sings.

    Can I do anything about this?

    This is what lies under the pickguard and goof rings of my Walnut topped 72 Deluxe. Is there anyway I can even things up? Fade the pickguard stain or blend the faded and under pickguard stain somehow.
