    Count one more vote for the white guard. Or eggshell if you prefer… I seem to remember one post of yours mentioning it right before I bought one from Callaham?

    With white guard and its own maple neck it is a beautiful, beautiful tele. And you say it also plays and sound great… what more do you want? You were on the lookout for a neck and you found a gem at an incredible price!

    Ah yes, the eggshell guard is beautiful... but it's a '60s 3 ply guard for a '60's style Tele, so I wouldn't put it with maple, but if you added it to the body and used a rosewood board neck it would start to look like a Pure Vintage '64 I suppose.

    BUT from your pics I thought that the maple neck looked much, much nicer than the rosewood one on this body. So I’d go with a white(ish) guard and leave all else as it is ;)

    Very nice man. I love the way that grain subtly shows through the finish. Nice guitar.

    I like the black guard. I like the way it sits with the chrome pickup and bridge plate

    That is stunningly beautiful. Please don’t part it out. The Baja 50s are awesome guitars. I have two, they’re my favorite guitars. The MIM upper level guitars are great. The classic series, the Classic Players, the road worns, etc. are really great guitars?

    Am I the only one who prefers the black guard? Just enhances the body color to my eyes.

    Never realized these were a thing until your mention in your 59 build thread. These look awesome. Will keep my eyes open. If I had run across one I might would have thought it was scam.

    I wonder if that finish will yellow as it ages, to produce what is now known as BSB?

    Man! This is my dream Baja! I wish they sold these as a production model!

    Plenty of bright sunlight, plus plenty of tar from cigarettes, probably. Otherwise, not quite.
