Nice looking 45...[love]

 

 

I was wondering........

What was the last year of the "big" PU guard? Before they went to the tear drop shape...[biggrin]

other way around. the tear drop stopped around 1954/55 and they went large from there.

 

Thanks' date=' well they are [i']back[/i] to small so I guess I'm asking what was the range of Big?....

Just an opnion but I would make that a J-45 built before 1965.

 

Gibson went to the larger pickguard in 1955 - the same year the went to the non-scalloped braces.
