  1. Or, getting a colonoscopy.....
  2. Pau Ferro is just as real as Indian Laurel. If I were Fender, I'd stain the IL a little darker and doubt that anyone would determine any real difference from RW. It just looks dry....
  3. Stand by, somebody with much more knowledge than, myself will be along in a bit. In the meantime, welcome aboard. Pictures always help.
  4. A wise decision. Fantastic, all-around guitar, capable of a variety of tones. Dennis is right, they can feedback, but as long as you're aware of your proximity to your amp, you should be fine. I actually like them for controlled feedback. Beyond that almost all years and countries of origin are good. I don't recall them having any particular problems with anything, just find the one that speaks to you, when you pick it up. Once you get it, post pictures and a review of your impressions, would ya?
  5. Here's one that I had. The color was just a little too bright for me, liked it though. If I remember correctly, a 2012.
  6. Been a while, good sir. Hope all is well.
  7. Try TerrapinGuitars. They have online templates, that you can print out, and make alterations to, for situations like this. You can scan the marked up template, or mail it to them and they'll make it for you. I've used them for a half dozen guards and as mentioned, you can order with no bracket hole.
  8. What are the dimensions from pickup to pickup? A Casino guard might just work. Plenty of places that have those, even ones that sell without the bracket hole, for a true 335 look.

  10. @bobouz and red 333, thanks for some actual information on the subject. Seems to be a little rare these days.
  11. Maybe it's just me, but of all of the guitar colors, I find blue to be the most "un-natural"....
  12. Nice! But this isn't going to turn into one of those "all blue guitars" things, is it?
  13. Love it! Terry would be proud. First two times I saw him, he was playing an SG, so I always connected that guitar to him. The last time I saw him, he was playing a tele (and a firebird), not the one in your pictures, but still natural. Wonder if that was before he "modded" it?
  14. Biggest difference are the pickups, Gibson mini-humbuckers on the '62. The '62 has a frequensator tailpiece and a mahogany neck, while the Pro II has a 5-piece maple/walnut laminated neck and a stop bar tailpiece. Pau Ferro fret board and Grover 18:1s on the Pro II, while the '62 has a rosewood fret board and Grover 14:1s. Couple of other slight differences. Never owned a Pro II, but I love my modified '62.
  15. Thanks Jacob, this one will come in handy.
  16. So, here comes the fun part, trying lots of new guitars and buying one.
  17. Got it, then I did miss something. Sorry to interrupt.....
