This battle worn warrior is on the bench at the moment and have a couple of quick questions. The job is to replace the electrics, straighten ot the guard, rewind the bridge pickup, level crown and polish frets and a setup. The objective is to retain the look of the guitar as it is. Belonged to a very well known singer here who died recently. His son has chosen me to bring her back to life. The guard screws are way longer than I've seen before [am no expert on older teles] at around 3/4". See pic below. The guard is terribly warped and wonder if it has been an attempt by the owner to secure the guard to the body - didn't work too well but enough screws bit to hold it on. The neck heel stamp - what does it mean? The bottom pics are an attempt to show the warping in the guard. I'll use the warm day sunshine with guard sandwiched between two pieces of plate glass. Maybe the oven? still a little reading to do there.
