McMaster-Carr has what you need

Chris Lucker would know the answer. I don't think the invoice number guitars went too much higher than yours before they switched to the serialized numbers with a "D". I think that was early ...

This from a guitar that I no longer own. It was an '81 so it has the 1/4" brass hex nut, not 3/16" like the later models. Will that work? I will mail it to you if you send b0b and the forum ...

Roger, I'd be willing to bet a dozen holiday doughnuts that it's just a too-loose lower return spring. A raise returning sharp but settling back after engaging a lower is a classic symptom of this. It ...

Is it this guitar? That's an early/mid-60s permanent. It will likely be a big challenge to pin down the date very closely without the original paperwork. That's an extremely cool guitar, I was puzzled ...

Roger, it appears b0b made a further change, the notification emails are now coming from "postmaster@bb.steelguitarforum.com" so you'll need to add that to your whitelist also.

It seems most likely that the issue is related to server validation. The emails are being rejected at the server level, so user-side spam filters etc. won't make any difference.
