    the 9 1259 Julio shows on his site is a match to what was sent to me 44 years ago ...I never held or seen the guitar in person, so it could very well have been a refin but the grain and wear were a match to present day pix

    It's interesting, because the photos I have of the VB guitar are from 1972. The owner at the time is very well known and respected, and has owned some of the most iconic 'bursts of all time. It came with the original bill of sale, from 1961.

    I haven't seen the Dutch guitar in person either, but I'm told by somebody who has that it's a refin.

    As for the Japanese book guitar.........who knows.

    There's a very long thread on the other forum about someone who was going to buy this guitar, including a hands on inspection saying it was a top refin, and that there was some overspray on the headstock.

    The view of the person I know inspected it is that the serial is reinked too.

    Oh, and if reference to the thread at the other place, that's not where the story ends.......but that's for Gregory and Eric to discuss.

    John,
    I haven't gotten an email from you in three weeks, and no photos in that or any other emails this year.

    Why not just post it?

    I think the Japanese book one is a red herring...a simple typo mistake on the number. Unless of course there are other shots in the publication that show the numbered headstock..at which point my sleuthing skills turn to shit...

    So we're back down to 2, perhaps...? I'm still trawling through the narrative from the place that dare not speak it's name.

    The mystery e-mail...all e-mails remain a bloody mystery to me...

    Wot larks.

    These are the images that Gary posted a couple of years ago, but now missing from the thread due to the photobucket thing.

    Merely thought it interesting and relevant to get them back up.

    It's not my photo, simple as that. I believe it's coming out in Vic's new book.

    Tom, I sent the photo to the same account you've always been on. I'll try again, but please don't share. I know others won't thank me, but it's simply not mine to make public domain.

    Emails can be mysterious, that's for sure!
    You can use sunburst 2 at mindspring dot com
    or ... tom at thirdeyeguitar dot com

    The first one is better, and I will be happy to keep it private.

    Pleasure Gary.

    Here's a question, perhaps some of the "older hands" can share their experience?

    It seems accepted that the guitar shown is a top and back of neck refin, perhaps done some time in the 70's...is it beyond reasonableness to suggest that the serial number was in some way re-instated in a random fashion by those that refinished it?...ie for whatever reason not the same number as original? EDIT - something already suggested in post #76 by John - that I didn't read properly - apologies.

    Is this something that the collective experience has seen before?

    John, send me the mail you're trying to get to Tom, I'll forward it to Tom and see if that works.

    Discretion is of course assured.

    Probably some anti-spam issues, email has gotten pretty unreliable. I mostly send pics in WhatsApp now, or iMessage if they are Apple users.
