    I bought this MIJ 60's Custom reissue used in around 1995. Despite the rather thick finish, it sounds really great with old Bardens installed. The neck is really great. It's flanked by a '66 "Mandocaster" and a Collings OM2hsb.

    Just finished off a double bound MJT build last week. Routed the neck for the P-90. The project began with a vintage F-logo Bigsby from 1973 that I acquired on the cheap over a year ago. My first build! :)
