I had a '63 that I regretfully sold. Sigh.
I quite honestly think they don't look as good as the single cut ones like your beautiful one, but it's so nice to play. That said I've not played a later 60s Nashville that I've like that much.
What do you think of the "diaper" on the back of the body?
They are a great design.
I actually quite like the pads
It’s to cover the access panel for the mute.
Nice grain on that one Mr. 100!
Thanks mate. But when I see your guitars it makes me want to burn my effort of a collection.
Your guitars are just out standing.
Ah beautiful! I have the RI so I may be biased.
Normally for ebonizing I’d say a good leather dye. But it really depends on the material.
If it’s a slight discoloration like dried out rosewood most oils like Danish, bore, even Dunlop lemon oil will build up and darken the fretboard sufficiently with each application.
If it’s really maple and it’s starting to show through, I’d probably look for a good ebony stain like Minwax.
1956... or 56...
Again . . . WOW! I like the . . . umm . . '56!
Holy mackerel that '56 Chet is GORGEOUS! The ruddy color is akin to the slightly later '57 examples. Just fantastic!
Take a deep breath, Ed. Think about baseball.
I saw few of those deep rusty 6120, all of them are 1956... #18270 #20816 but #21635 seems to be 57 and has the same rusty color... No rules, #22009 is light orange ! To me, many of the 1957 last bastches are simply a different redder orange...
After a year or two, I sold it to help pay for a Silver Falcon. But it sure drew a lot of attention while I had it!
I used to have exactly the same model (with the white soapbar pu) and I deeply regret selling mine, too.
Mine had a rosewood board.
The neck-angle was quite flat and there was the dowel at the heel.
It was parallel-braced which is absolutely unorthodox for a one-pickup model. Rather slim body. Obviously it was one of the very last batches before changing the 6119 to a 2 pickup model. Very delicate and superlight guitar in museum-quality.
