  1. I already posted on the TGP thread for this, but thought I'd share for the folks here... starting to look like a FT-150 neck on a Teisco body very similar to the ET-270.
  2. One way to tell if it's UV discoloration (from sitting in the sun in a shop window for 3 years) is to peek under the pickguard.
  3. Hi gang. The nut on my blue Supernova's jack cracked in half! Never seen that happen before. Will the StewMac item 1236 fit? Bummer I have to spend $10 to have them ship a <$2 item! lol
  4. Yeah. They're really neat guitars for the money. Kind of like a Gretsch with a tone knob!
  5. Old zombie thread... bumping for update: Still have Casino. Sold Riviera, LP Studio, and Wildkat. Bought another Wildkat in TQ! Just made a deal on a TQ Emperor Regent. Woo hoo!
  6. The space between the first 4 and last 4 characters is totally normal. Congrats on a cool piece! If you don't like the pickguard and bracket please sell it to me - I need a period correct one to restore mine! (no, the Allparts/Stewmac/Amazon/Gibson/Epi/etc parts don't fit a late 90's Epi Broadway)
  7. Tweed, how'd you see mgrasso's pics? I just see the "pay Photobucket money" image.
  8. The neck dimensions are just right for me, it seems. I tend to like smaller necks a la Rickenbacker and vintage Gretsch. The Peerless Epi's scratch that itch and have good enough pickups and electronics to hold their own. Sometimes tuners need to be changed, which is simple, but often the stock ones are even ok.
  9. I've got a Sunrise Orange (trapeze) and a Gold Flake (Vibrotone). Fantastic instruments! https://www.flickr.com/photos/155319390@N02/shares/u88c6Z https://www.flickr.com/photos/155319390@N02/shares/5Ed4Qh
  10. Interesting, could be... got a pic?
  11. Anything but the specific one from that era will not fit. It's hard to find.
  12. The search continues... the AllParts one does NOT fit this '98 Broadway. I hate to poach a beautiful Peerless Epi! Who's got one? Thanks, J
  13. Lookie what I found!!! https://www.dropbox.com/s/wfbw7edm9hqimha/Epi%20Sorrento%20GF%20VT.jpg?dl=0 How do I post the image now that photobucket is goofy?
  14. Got knobs in the mail from Tweed - thank you very much!!!
  15. Thanks Tweed! I don't see any place to check messages though. Feel free to email me. It's my user name at the big "G" mail system. And I don't mean Gibson LOL
  16. I have owned about a dozen guitars twice, and one three times!
  17. here they are... https://www.dropbox.com/s/j1ja1muqkujo3nf/20171012_183156.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/hq7nf4adtceq9uj/20171012_183219.jpg?dl=0
  18. Thanks! Will do as soon as I have a chance.
  19. Hey gang - just snagged a sweet '96 Sorrento (Peerless, trapeze tailpiece) in Sunrise Orange. It's like a Gretsch and a Casino had a baby! Plays so great I trotted it out to a gig over the weekend. One of the TONE knobs is chipped and missing its top though. Where is the best place to get replacements? I'll buy the whole set of 4 if I have to. Thanks!
  20. I totally get trying to make it as good as possible, but I think for a $100-200 guitar you might have to live with that gap.
