    That life sized B9 robot actually belongs to a buddy of mine that I used to stay with when I traveling a lot a few years back. Sadly I don’t have that Tele anymore either.

    Got this JT-Hawk-12 a couple of weeks ago. It's the earlier model with the toaster pups and the Ric body style. Fret board is wider than I'd like, but I get used to it after playing it a bit, and it sounds awesome. Looks good, too.

    Yes, I won the bid on eBay for the Turser viola bass...no other bidders. Plays great. Nice to use during Beatles sessions with friends.

    Got it from a pawn shop for $85, changed the pickups, and now it's one of my favorites.

    Here are my Turser guitars. Also my Harley Benton SC-500. Anybody have any information on the different headstock script logos for Jay Turser guitars?

    Not really a flip, had it a few years, then needed to clear space for some other stuff. Was sad to see it go, but made a decent enough profit.

    Still love that purple one

    Is this a Jay Turser?? I assume some of the hardware has been changed/added on. I got it on eBay many years ago for like $200 maybe. I do not think the model/make was on the listing. I just thought it looked unique lol

    Sorry for the late reply. My purple JT has a different shape than a traditional Les Paul. It also has that angle heel on the neck. The vintage sunburst one has the traditional Les Paul shape. That one was upgraded with PRS USA pickups and the tuning machine heads are the Dimarzio ones that automatically cut the excess strings. 18:1 ratio but I don’t think they are locking tuners. Any how if I remember correctly when I had looked under the tailpiece of these, the purple one has “1998” and the vintage sunburst has “1993.” Could this actually signify the year that they were made? It is to my understanding that the chalice script are from the older models and the one the ones that have the moon script are newer ones. They seem very well made and I might actually like the stock pickups on my purple JT better than the PRS pickups. One thing that annoys me on my JT’s is that the stop tail piece posts are slightly lifted from the body. But this doesn’t seem to affect anything that I can notice. What do you think about my taste in Vampirella?

    I believe some early Harley Benton and Oscar Schmidtt guitars have the same logo script as your JT. Then again they might have all been made at the same place at one time. Oscar Schmidt also has dragon inlay Les Paul style guitars.
