This guitar has been on the forum for a while. But I am the new owner. After months of persistence, I finally pried this one away from our good friend and forum brother Frank Pine. Although it has been shown on the forum before, I will have a different twist on it. For one, I do not remember seeing any photos of it inside of a case here on the forum; and I have two cases for it - a Lifton and a tweed historic case with blue interior, which many people associate with Stingers (though they have come with other guitars as well). Also, I swapped out a few parts:

new Historic wireless bridge
Retrospec offset tail piece studs
vintage 1959: PAFs (double white bobbins), pots, and caps.

And I have included a demo video to get a little example of the tone. I am not sure this is the best example for a demo; a song with some rhythm and leads may have been better. But I had to put something together quickly, so this is it; plus I was working on this solo for the first time ever this week. It is the solo to Heartbreaker from the BBC sessions. My version is full of mistakes, but the purpose here is to give a little tone example.

What a guitar. That Stinger is smoking. The top is killer, Brazilian, white PAF's, tweed case, rare find. That's where it is at.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. With a little help from Frank.

Perfect, congrats and enjoy.
