  1. I think he is referring to the area under fretboard extension and yes this is unfinished on most archtop models with a raised fretboard. I doubt they can buff it out with their buffing polishing methods. I will bet some higher end archtop makers have a way to finish and polish this area but it has never bothered me any more than over scraping the binding in areas. Enjoy your L-4 it's a great guitar, I sure like mine. Thanks john
  2. I would be interested in the replies. I have a ES 345 and besides position 1 I like 3 and 4 the best. I find it very useful especially in a studio/recording session. the older ES 355 usually had it but a lot of the newer reissues don't. The varitone is one of the reasons I bought my 2009 ES 345, that and the playability/tone. And don't even get me started on the stereo feature. Thanks john
  3. Today I am playing my ES 345 through my 1962 Fender Pro, tomorrow who knows. It's hand wired too. Thanks john
  4. Sounds like you found yourself a very nice guitar and are enjoying it. I have a 1956 ES225T, one year older than me, and I enjoy it very much so I know from where you speak. They are unique guitars and I think the tailpiece is part of the reason. Have fun. Thanks John
  5. Beautiful guitar TK LP, enjoy. If it plays half as good as it looks you will be happy with it. Thanks John
  6. I had a similar problem with my ES-335 and my ES-345. The correct Vibramate was off about 3/16 of an inch. I didn't want to use an extra bottom plate so I marked, re-drilled and tapped the top mounting holes in the Vibramate. Now it fits perfect. The Vibramate also gave me a better break angle over the bridge and makes the roller bridge unnecessary. I hope this helps and thanks John
  7. Steve, I have no answer to your question but the should be a very nice guitar. It is nice to see you around. Thanks John

  9. My 2009 ES-345 in walnut looked plastic and shiny when new now it has a lovely, well used patina. No chips, nicks or cracks but with a bit of wear on the gold it's beautiful and it was not a VOS model. My L-4CES is coming along well also. Thanks John
  10. I have a 2009 ES-345, 1975 Guild Starfire IV with a mahogany body and a 2013 Guild GSR Starfire VI with a spruce top and maple body. All are thin line semi hollow body guitars with dual humbuckers. These all seem like they are similar guitars but all are quite different playing and sounding and unique in their own way. I don't think I would but another Starfire or a ES-335. Although I would buy a ES-330 and I am not trying to be a smart ***. Thanks John
  11. I think you need to get a second opinion, just to be sure. Thanks John
  12. As for the Lucille I think it's more the individual guitar. Several people who have played my 2009 ES-345 comment on the piano like tone unplugged. "there that one did the trick" If they only could have heard it...". Thanks John
  13. It's OK, I am on the outside now. John
  14. beware of the goblin girls. Thanks John
