Waiting on flocking. Got it ready for new black flocking. The pink in the holes is rolled up card stock to keep flocking glue out. Just makes it easier for me anyway.

Wow a lot of work, but looks like its being done well. I could be wrong or maybe its a typo, but are you sure its a 79 model? I thought the front apron plate and slotted changer fingers came later. ...

Jerry, this one does have the neck milled out for splits. Looks to be original too. Probably an option Bruce offered in 1979.

Chris, you would have to remove the strip to do that which is really best way to fix. But, if the strip is just loose like in your pic, I use gorilla glue. Put some glue on a thin piece of cardboard l ...

No Bobby it doesn’t. Serial number on this one is 2286, no D. It’s stamped on endplate.

I don’t carry my steel in a case but when I do, it’s just a simple thing to get one of your band buddies or even a waitress, lol, to help you set it out. Much easier for two people.

I’ve heard that everything done to the Emmons push pull was done with tone in mind. The little wire hooks keep the guitar resonating around pickup and not being dampened into the cross bars by rods. ...
