    Grats! Lovely guitar! I too have a soft spot for that year’s Gibsons!

    All back to factory glory! Lost some of the truss rod cover font. But both screw holes are cracked. Soo I’ll be ordering a new one anyway. Someone here has a etched pinup cover on a Lp. May borrow that idea lol.

    I’ll post full pics after I clean the rest up. I love binding on Teles. Not so much LPs. Idk why. But I’m glad I found one with such beautiful graining.

    no earthly idea what they did to the back. But not overly worried about that. Tells her story.

    Nice. I like that moderate figuring. It looks really good and not gaudy.

    I really like it. Not to flashy. It’s practical. After all we can’t all be Buck Owens with his flashy guitars haha. But it’s nice enough to pop a little.

    Plus will be a very nice match to my T build when she’s done (pickups on the way! Thanks to @Bootstrap) no finer match on earth than a Telecaster and Les Paul
