Needs a setup. Intonation is off. Action high. Neck looks really good. Some of the frets need a crowning. Neck is comfortable in the hand. The frets appear to be jumbo. It has 3 knobs and all are push/pull for coil split and phase. Has knicks and dings for a 35yr old pawn shop find. The tuners are small bodied.

It has mojo, tho. And weighs as much or more than my single cuts. I’m guessing close to 10lbs.

I was looking for a replacement trem bar, scouring the net for info on what I needed when I found out I was missing an insert to allow a 6mm import bar. But a little more searching and i found option that would take some work...

Search the parts bin... Aha! I had he parts I needed. Now out to the shop to look for the right thread die... no luck. Tried 4 shops and finally found the die I needed. Now we’re cooking with propane!


I plan to replace it with a black bar eventually, but hey! It works!!!
