You welcome !
I should do this with all my guitars, just for the curiosity...
When I get my finances together I am definetly going to get one of their single cup LPJR's
The Junior has 43mm nut. Thickness at the 1st fret is 22.6mm.
At the 12th fret 52.6mm wide, thickness 23.9mm.
Nice C type profile, very comfortable.
I'm so tempted to buy one of those juniors.
They are nice, but I don't know if they are available in LH ?
I only clicked on this because I thought it said "The New Barbie Benton"
Dear me! I was so gassing for their black paisley telecaster but after seeing their Fusion T-HH roasted maple FNT with stainless steel frets I'm smitten .
Thank you again, tubelectron and beagle.
I (finally) posted your results along with others in a dedicated thread:
I am almost thinking about pressing the button for a lefty TE-40 LH TBK myself, glad you like yours OP, such great vfm ..
What are the metal medal type things on your headstock?
@Ted Keane : you mean this below, right ?
These are Soviet Runner award pins and badges (1st red, 2nd purple and 3rd green places). I bought them many years ago at a local flea market were some Eastern sellers were participating. I had a great assortment of them (civil, military, sportive, industrial) for 5 Euros only.
There's an another one here below - industrial this time :
This other one below is military - it plugs the factory misplaced volume control hole (too close from the bridge PU to my taste) .
Is that a Supro Westbury above tubelectron? If so, what is it like?
Thanks.Nice custom touch.
Exact @Lefty Addams : it's a Surpo Westbury LH in Turquoise Metallic.
Original look, as is :
Once modded (nut, trem, roller bridge, pickguard and truss-rod cover, wiring) :
As is, it's a very good sounding guitar, very quiet (no hum, despite the Supro pickup are single coil), think the tone of a "fat" Telecaster, I'd say a mix between P-90 (bottom end and mid presence) and Tele pickup tone (clarity and twang).
My mods do not affect that tone : they are just more practical (controls position) and complies with the addition of the Duesenberg Super-Tremola LH tremolo.
This is a well built guitar, very pleasant and comfortable to play. No issue : she plays flawlessly.
I bought her 2nd hand, like new, unused, for 300 Euros . The (French) original owner probably bought it from Anderton's Music Shop (UK).
You welcome !
