Do you plan on removing the amp decal?
It's a metal amp badge screwed on. I may leave it until I can get it refinished to the proper sunburst that it was born with.
Keeper or restore and sell?
Keeper. Restore later.
I think it's killer. I read the other thread you started. I think it's a good move for you. Kinda jealous, actually. All the best with it.
And yes, I'd do a nitro relic refinish sometime down the road
Thanks for the words. Yes it is a revelation. I am so lucky and I only wish that all of you out there could be so lucky. I share this with you in my heart. TB is a joy to me and, well, I just hope you all could find such a deal some day.
3K no way int that condition. 2K tops.
You're about three years late with that sage advice
Wouldn't a '62 have stacked pots?
So.......I wonder if the OP still has it, and has it been refinished yet?
It was late 61 when the stacked pots went away. The "62 re-issue" is a bit of a misnomer by fender, for naming consistency with the 62 P reissue.
Yes, in fact I have seen three knobs like mine with 61 neck dates listed as 61 models.
Yes I have it and here's the refin. Since it had some holes in the upper bout to fill and hide and it's a refin anyway, I did it heavy on the red and black with just a hint of yellow in the middle
Neck was stripped and bleached. Clear nitro.
Only the back of the neck was stripped since it had been sloshed with oil varnish. The face of the head was not varnished and we didn't strip it: leaving the decals intact.
Nice!! I need to grab a find like that.
Re - stak knobs vs. VVT, John Paul Jones made a comment in an interview, stating his was a 61, "right after they changed the controls".
I dig it!
