What kind of tenon did they use in these? A tenon and dowel like the Super Reals or just an intermed / short tenon? It's a beauty, but I've grown accustom to seeing basically every MIJ guitar with a long tenon.
Tenon talk always kind of amuses me -- like, think about how long the tenon still is on "short" tenon guitars, and then think about how much actual additional tenon is even still there after routing out for the neck pickup in a "long" tenon guitar.Short tenon and a stellar guitar? Why that's just crazy talk!!
Everyone knows you need a long visible mortise and tenon to be a good guitar player. Didn't mean to stir debate, just think it's interesting to see what they were doing when a long tenon is basically agiven on all modern MIJ Gibson copies. Especially since early Navigators and Tokais are held in such high regard - and they didn't even have the fabled long tenon.Short tenon and a stellar guitar? Why that's just crazy talk!!
