    1502588198705-39663289.jpg I made this deal about 1 month ago with forum member AllModCons (Jim) but due to an extended vacation I just met with him today to get the guitar. This isn't my first dealings with Jim. About 6 months ago I purchased a flat black Setzer Hot Rod from him. When I expressed an interest in the 2006 6193 he contacted me and said he would be interested in a deal that would return the Hot Rod to him. We agreed on the terms so today I got the 6193 and he got back the Hot Rod. I set it up with my preferred strings, replaced the non-original wood bridge with a brass Tru -Arc I had in my parts box (original bridge is a gold Synchro Sonic) and adjusted the Dynasonic poles per Paul Setzer. Sounds great! The original gold G Cut tail piece has been replaced with a Bigsby. If anyone out there has a spare gold Synchro Sonic bridge with base and/or gold G Cut tail piece for sale I am looking for these items. Many thanks to Jim for his patience to make this happen!
