    dpang, Air Force moved me to Tucson in 1975, been here since. Ain't going anywhere. And ...yeah, i DO have the 25.5" neck on a 24.75" body. BUT, I love it. Tune down half step like my acoustics. A friend GAVE it to me as a thank you for doing a bunch of work on a '65 Regal branded Harmony Sovereign. I had no idea he was going to do that so was quite shocked to own my very first electric guitar. And you know how "first" guitars are...my first electric is special to me. But to tell the truth I got rid of my first acoustic after a couple years and that was in the 70s. But I still remember that guitar.

    I had a 1963 Gibson LG0 I played for 40+ years. Loved it! Marketed as a "Student Guitar", but was I think 38" long, which is longer than a 3/4 Acoustic now. Think they are 36"? Baby Martin Owners?

    Oh, I forgot to respond about the 12th fret question. Yes, I did carefully measure nut-to-mid 12th fret thing. And what I found was that the previous owner had NOT adjusted the barrel saddles backward enough so every string was sharp when I checked intonation at 12th fret. Easily fixed though as there was plenty adjustment left. Now intonation is perfect. I still can't imagine why the prior owner took the trouble to replace the neck like he did but then didn't make sure the intonation was good afterward. Never will get that. BUT...very good point, dpang.

    Nice to be able to move the Saddles, rather than the Bridge! My good friend Jerry Taylor got shot over by the "Graveyard of Planes" at Davis M. and killed! Fred Enke Golf Course by PCC. Killed by those two Guys who did some killings in Virginia (Mohahmed and some Kid). Shot out of the Trunk of Car. They were in Tucson and "Practiced" by taking him out. They never found the bullet, but his Daughter got a Confession from the Kid. Sad time!

    That is a Highway One body with a Mighty Might neck. I should change the pic, I sold it. Now I have a nice solid ash American Deluxe with N3 noiseless pickups.

    Very nice.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I took a road less traveled. Just ordered another this AM. No kidding.

    Many thanks.

    First one is a G&L ASAT Tribute with a tremendous upgrade in pickups, Seth Lover (n) and a MFD USA/ Fullerton bridge, as seen in second photo.

    The Red CAR Telecaster is a 2016 - 2017 MIM thinline, shipping box stock standard, sounds great, plays great just doesn't get much playing time for some reason.

    Enjoy your partscaster it really looks grand, glad it plays well.
