Betcha it's a cannon

 

Mine is, Rough as this one looks it's hard to believe no cracks though. Replacement machines that look auth. and a refret. Not a bad price though.I've seen 56's- 58's in the past year selling for upwards of 5 and one with an asking of 9.5

Non original bridge. Looks like a 60's bridge, definately not a 50's bridge !

Looking at the picture again it's obvious that it's an aftermarket luthier made bridge.

Notice how it's touching the pickguard, way bigger then the original would have been.

Definitely not the prettiest thing to come out of a molded case! Nice top and pickguard. I agree that the oversize bridge is quite distracting... [woot]

And there has been some "hanky panky" played on that neck, Jes Sayin'

You are correct sir. BTW when you are here in Aug. (America's Cup ??)

 

Dates are a moving target right now, but probably about August 6-19. Unfortunately, for some reason they actually expect me to work while I'm there, rather than heading off to play with my guitar friends. Haven't quite figured that one out yet.

 

I'll also be back there in September and October, maybe with a bit more flexibility.
