    I found a NOS Synchromatic 1126 Junior Jet in blue from 2004-5 on Reverb at a crazy low price. How could I resist? Single coil "lap steel" pickup. Mint condition, no idea where it was for the last 15 years, certainly wasn't being played. Very light (not typical for Synchromatics!) and very playable. Nice single coil tone. Not sure what I'll do with it, but a nice addition.

    A single pickup guitar that would fell right into my field. Congrats, Jim. Is it a heavy-weight?

    Looks great! Any thoughts of making it into a slide guitar? After all, it does have that lap steel pickup.

    Congratulations on a good find, Jim! Like section2, I was wondering if you might be ready to give slide guitar a try.

    Find yourself a BIG amp. Turn it up really loud. Play "Mississippi Queen". That's what I suggest!

    Very cool, congrats! Nice that it's a light weight one too, the I'm guessing 9lb-ish weight is as close to complaint as I can come up w/ for my bolt on Special Jet from around the same era.
