Oh yes I did!
Congrats! You are a lucky person.
Oh wow that’s incredible. More detailed pics please!
The finish seems to have retained it's original color and didn't fade into the typical yellowed blonde most Blackguard have nowadays.Is the finish original?
Welcome to the club.
I don’t want to be a naysayer but I wonder if the logo is even original?
With all the wear on that nut it’s been played, but looks suspiciously clean
Is it restored?
I may be out of line and there might be plenty of clean broadcasters but my guess is if original this is probably one of the cleanest
Also that low E looks like a killer, looks like you have to pull it onto the board to play it
Looks awesome either way
Beautiful guitar. It is indeed in remarkably good shape for its age.
That isn’t nut wear. The early Broadcaster nuts were crudely cut with wide v shaped files and so they attracted dirt also the bone of the nut attracted natural yellow and brown staining.
Wow that’s a beauty for sure. Congrats
I think it's fake. You're going to have to send it to me for authentication.
The process takes 4 months
According to the shop (who is reputable, does business with the "usual suspects" collectors, etc.), it was with the original owner for 65 years, then it went to a collector/player for 5 years, then to me, where it will stay until my kids sell it after my funeral.
All original except for the tuners, not a refinish, original circuitry, etc. etc. Bridge pickup sounds terrific, and the middle position does as well. Neck position "dark mode" is goofy, but who knows -- maybe I'll run it through five distortion pedals and find a new tone to inspire me.
The low E does get squirrelly around the twelfth fret. Below that, it's very playable. I would chalk this up to being an alignment problem typical for the age (my '69 paisley has a similar issue on the high E), but I'm not an expert.
Nice! That's a perfect modding platform!
Great guitar. It looks so good and familiar to the eye, it’s hard to believe that it is not something like what we are more used to see, like a good custom guitar with light relic work... it’s the real deal? all the same, we want to know more and see more of it. But all you have to do is to enjoy and play this beauty.
Thanks for sharing.
Awesome guitar! Congrats, and enjoy!
Very nice! Congrats.
Are you able simply to loosen the neck "bolts" and re-align the neck so that the low E addresses the fingerboard better?
Brilliant. Well done, sir.
So you'll be enjoying the "blend" feature. How do you dig that? I have it on one guitar and I love that spot where the the neck pickup is very slightly blended in... its so sweet and nicely balanced.
BTW, I am shocked that it took until the 11th post for this to be suggested.
Take a look at this. Here it is:
