    Nice! I would have went for black pick guard screws. ( to get a darker tone of course! )

    Heh...black pickguard screws for "darker tone"...I like that! :lol: But I think I agree I'd like to see it with the black screws.

    Hi, I don't come around much but my subscription to this thread has prompted me to post another annual vacation portrait. Cheers. :)

    You know, that never even crossed my mind, and I love the idea. Guess what I'm digging out of the parts drawer at work tomorrow!

    I have a chance to pick up a 52 Hot Rod like new Ser# 66382 can anyone tell the year. It has the Original Case and all the case candy but need to know what it's worth. Butterscotch Blond. I'm guessing around 2009/2010 ? Thanks for the help.

    I could be wrong about this (and I'd like to be educated if I am), but I think the serial number isn't indicative of the year on Hot Rods and the only way to tell is by removing the neck because the date is put on either the neck itself or the neck pocket on the body. I looked to find similar info online after I got mine, mine is a 6XXXX number, but I couldn't figure it out and I'm not removing my neck (yet).

    Yes. The year is stamped on the heal of the neck

    For what it is worth the serial number of my 2007 Hotrod (which is the first year of production I believe) is 60435.

    I have seen them on reverb.com for 900 up to 1250. Probably not mint maybe 7 or 8 out of 10. I wouldn't sell mine for 1400 though ;)

    Black screws added, thinking about changing the neck pickup screws also. Anyone know who might make a black mini humbucker cover? Oh, and put a Hot Lead Stack in the bridge. It's better but I'm not yet convinced... maybe a Chopper T?

    Putting in a Lollar J-Street in the bridge of my Hot Rod today. I think it will be a great fit with the mini bucker. I will let you guys know how it sounds!

    Hey all, I want to adjust my truss rod to give me a bit more bow because my open E is rattling a bit.
    Which way do I turn the truss rod screw to give me more bow ?
    Thanks for any advice.
