    It looks 10 times better than the custom shop heavy relics they sell that look like 50 year old pieces of driftwood.

    Nice looking guitar. When I saw the saddles, I had to pause. This is fairly early 1951 guitar, and checking with the Blackguard book I see that it specifies that early ‘51 was the transition time for steel-to-brass saddles. Transition times can cause overlaps...and those saddles look as if they belong there.

    The price seems reasonable.

    In reading the description I noticed this:

    "All electronics and parts are correct, all solder joints are original, the bridge pickup has a resistance about 5.9 ohms, the neck pickup about 4.5 ohms the original pickup selector switch is loose from use and shorting some, both pickups pots and caps work. "

    Let's say you buy it. Are you going to fix the switch and lower the value or leave it original?

    Shipping to the UK is a bit hefty at £900...but I guess it will need good insurance. Love it, looks honest and genuine.

    I would asses the situation and try everything I could think of to return the original switch to proper function. I would try to not disturb any original solder joints while doing that. I would document all work.

    Absolutely beautiful - great originality and authentication at a decent price. Ill be surprised if it hangs around too long.

    That neck looks like a big old bruised banana! Whose initials are on the heel?

    What is the market for aluminum cans right now? Heading out to the garage with the bathroom scales.

    I'm playing the lottery for tonight and tomorrow night.

    When I win, I'm gonna buy this and play it just like my other guitars.

    I think I see a T on one side and a G on the other side. Harder to see the date, but I think I see a 5 that resembles mine. (12-53)

    There's a lesson there for the relic makers who try to age hardware.
