NOTE THIS IS A PROJECT GUITAR AND/OR PARTS DONOR !!!! NOT FOR THE FAINT AT HEART, OR UNSKILLED PP MECHANIC!!!! It NEEDS COMPLETE RESTO . The cabinet is home made with 3/4” thick aprons which would not fit into the endplates so someone cut out the endplates for the cabinet. On one corner they cut a notch from the outside of the cabinet to fit that corner to the endplates. The cabinet is covered completely with mica without leaving space for front apron aluminum trim strips, they just put shiny tape strips directly on the mica. It has a George L’s pickup on E9th and Emmons single coil with a crack across the top. So the , cabinet, endplates and one stock pickup are not useable. The key heads have been drilled for modern keys so they have value. Most of the cross shafts, bellcranks, necks/fretboards, a George L’s pickup, and changers appear to be useable. The pedal bar is rough but could be polished out. The pedals look OK Close inspection reviews that the pedal rod connectors are
bearing connectors , like the old Bigsbys used in the 50's. A friend told me tha Emmons may have used these connectors on their very first guitars. Main point here is that they are not altered and that they are original (and possibly very rare0 emmons.

MIGHT TRADE, offers entertained.
Closer inspection reviewed that the pedal rod connectors are
bearing connectors , like the old Bigsbys used in the 50's. A friend told me tha Emmons may have used these connectors on their very first guitars. Main point here is that they are not altered and that they are original emmons.

Those are the Emmons pedal connectors that were used in 64 65 and maybe some of 66.
