    Was able to get back my Dad's 46 Synchromatic thanks to Ryan. We worked a deal that I think benefits us both. Plays nice, sounds nice.

    Well, as a kid I never played, was interested in sports and screwing off. He got rid of other gear but kept his guitar. He passed away and it sat at my sisters house, one day I took it, sat at my house a long time and I finally picked it up, decided I wanted to learn but not on the Synchro so bought a 5420. One day I realized if I assumed room temperature my wife wouldn't know what to do with it so i sold it to a fellow who I was comfortable with having it.

    He had a neck reset done and the correct tailpiece put on, etc. - I would have been clueless. A few months ago we came up with a deal good for both of us. That's about it.
