    Very nice. What pickups did you put into the Electromatic on the right and how was the procedure?
    I just put HS Filtertrons in mine but I did consider dynasonic type.
    thanks

    These are TV Jones' T-armonds with the Dearmond Mount. It's no direct swap without filling the old holes an drilling new ones. And the old holes would have been visible.
    So I made a brass adapter plate which has the same dimensions as the original plastic pickup Rings and mounted the T-armonds on top. IMG_20200330_163855.jpg (Got the idea here in a thread in the forum)
    This way I can easily change it back - which I wont't do, because these things are awesome!

    Big John - It's a 60's Kay K6868 "Style Leader". These had maple flame veneer tops, a floating adjustable bridge, celluloid pickguard and fret markers, brass frets, and painted-on binding. Yours has the flame maple fretboard, whereas mine has a rosewood board.

    I recently had mine refurbished by my tech. He set it up, cleaned the fretboard, did some work on the bridge, and just generally got it back up to speed. He also put some new Martin Silk and Steel strings on it. Plays great now. It's really great for finger-picking blues.

    Thanks! Yes, as I mentioned above, it's a 60's Kay K6868 "Style Leader". I am not sure of the exact date of mine. When I research these guitars, it usually just says "60's"..

    I don't want anybody to notice that the couch plays better than I do.
