    Retrofitting 50s Style String Tree (Guide)

    No problem they used them on early strats It’s only job is to keep downward force on the strings

    American Vintage II - coming October

    I guess we’ll have to wait another decade when they become 20,000 dollar guitars and then they will do it They will be the next to skyrocket since the previous models are almost unobtainable

    My 1975 Tele Custom

    They did that up into the early 80’s I have a 79/maybe 80 lead ii with the nitro headstock Beautiful bright burst by the way! Edit: after looking at a few maybe they stopped the headstock nitro around 80-81 but I’m not positive, maybe it is 79 so I may be spreading misinformation

    Non of the above! They are ALL flat poles?! Woe!!! I had a picture of one of those saved for some reason (like the one on the left) and had no clue where/when it came from, in a time of temporary insanity I must have saved it from that post

    The 66 in that series was the best! The ones around 2006 even have the correct body contours on the back

    Tele Fender AV58 for 1400Euros/$? Good deal?

    If it’s only got that one chip then I say it’s a decent price! If that’s the original plastic on the guard it might have barely been played! I’d be interested, I’d like to get one eventually, beautiful guitar I’d just make sure that it doesn’t have any issues since it does have the plastic...

    I really wish they wouldn’t have tinted the neck’s (looks like they are tinted, maybe even more so than the A.O’s) The 2012 American vintage didn’t have tinted necks and should be considered the benchmark….

    I just don’t know why the haven’t done a 66-69 strat :( Other than an American vintage 70’s strat they did a couple years ago they never venture into big headstock land I’d love a 66-69 big headstock rosewood board strat with An accurate target burst…… I’d even be happy with a poly 69….

    Specific Guitars. The Length of Time You Owned Them?

    My les Paul turned 16 years old this year I bought it new I’ve owned my 79/80 fender lead ii for around 18 years Both are great guitars although the lead could use a little care I’ve kept most of mine although I wouldn’t have a problem selling some of them
