Do it Bucko!
Does anyone know what type of back profile and thickness was typical for the '67-'69 maple caps?
Generalizations get you in trouble, but I would say slim, but not tiny.Let's see if we can get a number of responses on this neck size question. I will say that every 66-68 I have played had very similar neck shapes.
The Allparts TMO-V necks are VERY similar to my '67 maple cap.
USACG has a profile (but of course I do not know what they call it) that is also VERY close.
The necks on the '84 MiJ pink paisleys and blue flowers are also essentially the same.
Now you know.
I never new that Fender made a maple cap until looking for my first tele a few months ago and came across a MIK Lite ash with a maple cap. Were there others?
'68 factory bigsby.
I've taken the photos.
Posted them on my Facebook page...but the server I use to post photos here is being very recalcitrant right now...no how, no way is it talking to my desktop.
Will get them posted as soon as I can.
Recalcitrant - now there's a word you don't see around TDPRI very often. Kudos to your vocabulary chops sir!
It is feeling better tonight...here are some photos of my '67
The body with the ORIGINAL ashtray:
The back with NO buckle rash:
The grubby bridge and threaded saddles:
The control plate (and we are beginning to see some imperfections):
a few more
Crazing on the headstock:
Something missing here!:
(which is why it is in this thread)
The whole thing:
There you have it.
Not perfect, but in better shape than most.
It is not the best guitar.
But it is better than most.
I've had it since '72 or '73.
The first "real" plug-in guitar that I owned.
