@ has been hard at work for me through the holiday season bringing my late 51-early 52 telecaster back to its former glory. Looks like he’s getting very close now. Here’s a shot of the truss rod and a re-written grease pencil date of 2-52. Not sure if that was the actual date of construction, but given the appointments it’s as good a guess as we can give. Thanks, Joe, for taking this project on and for your fine work. In case you have not heard of him, in addition to restorations,you should really check out his custom built guitars. They truly are fantastic instruments. Photo here courtesy of Joe!
