So awesome. I love Emerald City's videos. I'm always surprised how much fewer views they have compared to other similar types, but I guess they haven't been doing it all that long.

Nice shout out to @Danelectro on the replacement bridge as well. :thumbs:

My friend and guitar tech has a '52 LP. It is a thing of beauty. He bought it in the late 60s when gold top LPs (especially with P90s) weren't desirable. He got it for pennies on the dollar IIRC.

I got to play one with the original trapeze tailpiece and it was almost unplayable. someone had done the usual invasive mod you would find on these which was to drop some posts and bridge, but they kept the original parts which were put back on.
The unbound neck was beautiful.
