FYI, I emailed him back and forth a little about trying to make a deal for the rest of the guitar. He said it was unrestorable as it had been renecked and that was his reason for selling off the valuable parts. I then offered him a trade for an LP replica, still no go as he wanted to keep it for it's mojo. Point is he was very genuine and his whole story for these parts and the guitar sounded legit to me so I think he's on the level.

I'd give him a chance, probably will all be kool in the end if you scored those PAFs.:thumb:

Many thanks Fletch.
He gave me the same immediate genuine feeling, that's why I went immediately for the off ebay deal.
He still seems genuine, though the two days vanishing and delayed shipping raised my attention, understandably.

He still hasn't shipped and didn't provide reasons for this.

Awaiting for further communications on his behalf :)

Hi guys, I'm alive, a normal guy etc.......I understand the anxiety that deals can cause, but I assure everyone---I am quite straightforward about everything and anything. My Ebay record should speak for my experience etc.


In addition to all the guitar stuff (trying to get the PAF's out of the guitar without 'clipping' the leads from the pots.....which requires me taking out the harness etc---a LOT of work/time), it has been an incredibly busy latter half of the week, so my full apologies to anybody who has suffered from a "lapse" of communication with me. My intentions are to remain fully transparent and in contact at all times.

Thanks,
-Collin

I confirm that Colin has replied and everything seems to be accordingly.
I will be updating this thread as the info flows in (when I receive the tracking number, ... ).

Also, I will be opening a new gear thread upon receiving the PAFs with proper pictures and, as usual from me, a tone test.

Thanks EVERYONE for looking and thanks Colin for being a man of his word.

Thank you, my friend---glad they arrived safely, I look forward to a sound clip (as I'm not nearly a good enough player to have done them justice when I owned the pickups!)


Also, deal fell through with another forumite, so the following parts
are available (all are listed on Ebay right now, but special pricing for forum members of course).

-ABR-1 bridge
-Aluminim stop tailpiece
-Vintage Klusons
-Long tailpiece studs
-'59 strap buttons
