You guys sound great, Howard. I like you even better honky-tonkin' live though. Need to get out to hear you again. I'll be the odd sixty-something in your 20s-40s crowd. Razz

Here's a picture of my guitar's jack. Later models appear to have the recessed jack mounted at an angle closer to 45 degrees vs this 90 degree angle. Perhaps giving it access from the control cavity. ...

Maybe Ian is referring to these two single coils? Not the string-through that you're looking for but a good sounding setup. Yeah, the only Valco string-through eights I've seen are those very early in ...

Those are the first-generation ones with separate coils for each string; they have a different sound from the more common 2-coil pickups.

I doubt that any of the parts are Fender. Based on the tuner pan, legs and case, I think this was probably a Japanese knock-off that someone made a nicer body for. Regardless, I think it's a good pr ...

Agreed. Pickup value. I'd say more like $200-$300. Really nice ones seem to go for around $1200 but decent playable guitars with minor cosmetic issues can still be found for less than $800. Sounds ...
