The guy pulled a Peter Frampton....big head of blonde hair then gone.
Thats funny :laugh2:
I had long blond hair, decided I had enough and asked the barber to set the clippers on shortest setting and be done with it. She asked 5x if I was sure. Next few days, some people from my hometown just walked past without recognizing me, that was really weird and funny in way.
I guess I pulled a Peter Frampton hehe

Wolf rules. One of my faves. Saw Accept a couple of times back in the day.

I've been doing some research on Schaller 456. These bridges sell for some serious money - starting from around $300-350 for a well used ones and going up to $400-500 for the ones in good condition. They are discontinued, which explains the price.

Another thing I discovered - Schaller 456 will not fit on existing Gibson posts, it requires wider spacing. To put this bridge on a Gibson V one will need to remove existing posts, fill the holes and drill new holes to install Schaller 456 posts.

I wanted to re-create Wolf's Gibson V, but it looks like too much work and modifications to the guitar. And it will be quite pricey.
