Why oh why?


Recommended Posts

.....Why do people do what they do?


A 1955 ES-295 which was given to a young fellow from his deceased Uncle. I was tasked with cleaning,assessing and re-stringing the guitar.

Overall, in good shape and playability ,however, some hardware changes and not a hint of that beautifull gold finish left....(sigh)!


The guitar shows well and has some major Mojo in spite of an amateur re-fin. The Cali-girl case is 'the bomb' [thumbup]


I would love to do a 'proper' restoration.


Any clues to this tremolo origin? Its not Bigsby.....but it looks sort of familiar from other old guitars?
