Flakey - many thanks for your reply and for this very interesting post.
Jesus that's a clean blackguard...
Another difference is that one goes for 38,000 and another 3,800.
I guess that if the sound of 38,000 leaving the wallet doesn't please you try the 3,800 first and if that is to harsh on the ears try the Squire CV for 380 and a SD broadcaster pickup and .38 cents for a cap.
You're welcome. I enjoy these things for what they are and I'm fortune that I have friend that lets me share them with others that find them intresting.
I own 2477 - 1953 Refin Blackguard. (See Avatar) Almost twins, born a year apart.
That Nocaster is in better shape than mine, lol.
Um, may be a mistype, but my Nocaster (with original hardware) has a blend pot, not a tone pot. Could you clarify for me, as you were talking earlier about the tone pot on them.
My bad I was referring to the tone pot of the telecaster. Sorry for the confusion.
Is this the guitar with the refin neck?
Only the fret board surface has been refinished and refretted everything else is original.
Dave Rusan did the refinishing at the request of the current owner. Dave is best know for building the original cloud guitar for Prince. He did fantastic job matching the color of the fretboard lacquer with the original lacquer on the rest of the neck.
The head stock, Walnut plug, pickup cover (aka "Ash Tray") input jack area (one of the more rounded ones I've seen)
Neck pocket area, wear marks on pickguard and other areas.
More wear on the neck, etc.
I wouldn't kick either of those out of bed for eating crackers.
Stunning, absolutely Stunning!
Gaaaahhhhd, that neck shape!!! It looks to die for . . .
This one is more of a medium D to C shape (like a 62 tele custom) ending to a slight V up by the head stock. Where the wear marks are in the pic. One of the few I have personally encountered for blackguards.
I missed this thread back in July. Nice guitars. One thing....the control circuit on the Tele has been modded to a 'modern' circuit with a tone pot and no 'tic tac' bass dark tone option. That makes it more useful but less than original....as the solder joints indicate.
Rewired or no, sets my heart racing…
Yeah it doesn't both the new owner either. Its being hand carried on its way to Nashville this morning to a well known musician/recording artist.
