I'm curious about the specs of the '57 neck. True width, depth, contour.
Soft V .91 at the first fret.
Here is the story of the purchase.
And the restoration
Absolutely gorgeous. I also prefer white guards 55/58. I enjoyed both videos. Very happy for you and a big congrats!!
If ya ever wanna play some poker....lemme know
That would be totally over the top funny for it to be lost in two poker games
Jeez it took me forever to find (and afford) a good '67 Tele - "the last affordable vintage guitar" now you up the stakes. I'm out. Love your new guitar and your Youtube channels. Please don't buy a black guard!
Stumbled across the video over the weekend. I realized I had seen this guitar somewhere and watched the video and subscribed (though I had watched your Tonemaster video when I was strongly considering one). Cool stuff and a fantastic result.
I have a 79 strat neck with a soft v profile so it is something that popped up on occasion even in that era. It has a J. Torres stamp on the heel. Anyone here know how long J. Torres worked at Fender?
That neck is one of my favorites for sure.
I love my 67, and as stated in one of the vids, I sold a bunch of stuff to get the 57. Honestly, I am not a black guard guy. I prefer steel saddles and the raised d and g poles of a 57 bridge pickup. More bite and twang than a BG.
I know the feeling. I sold off a bunch of stuff to get my '67. Love it, just wish the neck was a bit bigger but I guess there is no such thing as "the" perfect guitar. Worth it to me. Would do it again.
Will someone tell me (again) why it is taboo to say how much somebody paid for something they bought? will it affect the resale value? is the person perhaps worried that his/her spouse might read the post and find out? or are there other underlying reasons I haven't discovered yet?.. forgive my ignorance.
I would say it could be that it is just not anyone else's business.
