    Why are refrets coming up so much these days?

    I've not heard this. At least not in the collector circles I move in. Refrets are par for the course along with neck resets on acoustic guitars. All I can think is that if the guitar has pristine original frets the rest of the guitar will likely be pretty mint therefore more desirable?

    RIP Judith Durham of the Seekers

    Little know in USA but much beloved in Australia, UK, New Zealand. An influential voice of 60s folk. One of my favourites :(

    Did Hank sr write any Blues songs?

    Jimmie Rodgers called country music "the white man's blues" I believe.

    Original Neck

    Yes you can. It's a slab board, just the way MIJs were done.

    Guitar that might be Buddy Holly's 1954 Strat

    They used a bit more attention to detail with La Bamba. By then 57 reissues were readily available. If you're really fussy you'll note that the 12 fret dot spacing was wrong on the reissues of the 80s (narrow spaced). I was more annoyed that they couldn't Lou Diamond Phillips the three simple...

    Guitar that might be Buddy Holly's 1954 Strat

    The letter from Bill Carson would have helped with the asking price - the same catalogue has original preCBS strats in the $3500- 5000 range.

    Guitar that might be Buddy Holly's 1954 Strat

    Hilarious! That strat was last seen for sale in the Gruhn vintage catalogue, August 95. Wasn't even a legit '68! 😆

    Dickie Phillips "over-the-top" on a Strat.

    Seems like there's at least one too many banjos in that shot?

    Abundance of riches, or option nightmare: the 3 Strat dilemma

    A lot of us have a mix of vintage and modern - be it guitars, watches, cars. We're under no illusion that old is better/faster/more accurate :) Speaking of tools, my wife's a keen amateur woodworker - she loves buying ancient tools at every junk shop we pass! lol

    Abundance of riches, or option nightmare: the 3 Strat dilemma

    The "new is better, or just as good, and way cheaper" argument kind of misses the point in regard to buying vintage IMO.

    Abundance of riches, or option nightmare: the 3 Strat dilemma

    Regardless - sounds like either of these slab boards have things that are going to bug you in one way or another. And trust me, the things that bug you don't EVER stop bugging you.

    Ever seen vintage Strat wired out of phase from the factory?

    Easy to test the polarity of the magnets - hold a magnet up to all three pickups. If it attracts to two and repels from one, you can determine if one is reverse polarity. If they all have the same polarity - most likely, it's a lead issue. That's pretty obvious to see if you can get inside the...

    cat lovers only.....

    Thanks :) We lost our beautiful Burmese boy Percy a month back, and while we know we can never replace him (he slept under the covers with us every night for 14 years!), we also know we are Burmese cat owners for life. They call them the "dog-lover's cat" - so playful and cuddly. Sure miss old...
