Seems pretty obvious ... I am asking about your post where you comment about the thickness of razorblades.
What were you talking about with that comment?

We are talking about thousandths of an inch....

The photo of the pickguard and marks is obviously magnified.

Maybe you have a 1960 Explore Pick guard for sale in your stash. :hmm

A lot of speculation from photos, stated as fact, and variety of interesting comments from knowledgeable people, including some who have handled it. I really don't see this as any kind of thorough vetting.

Is there a guitar that's been more vetted than this one?

Didn't the guitar "fail" when thoroughly examined against multiple known straight examples in Long Island?

Other than Gary and Clive, is there anybody who's examined it and believes it to be a straight guitar?


*let's exclude sloppy paperwork from the Pope, as he appears to be in the "fail" camp from what Gary's posted.

I think I may have taken that photo. I took the one of Clive, Billy Gibbons and Rick Harrison in the parking lot certainly. I remember half the LPF were stood around in the lobby while Tom and Joe were checking out that burst.

I believe that when the guitar was walked in to the UK from the US it was in a home-made type wooden case.

The current case is/was an MG addition to the "set".

Straight question Clive, how do you explain the precise coincidence of checking lines on the body with what appear to be razor marks on the guard, per the picture Eric posted.

If you're convinced the guitar is straight, then surely you must have an explanation?

Hey!!! Little Marco...!!! Remember, we spoke and you need to keep it real... First and foremost you said you have never had this guitar in your hands, a lastly you said you absolutely no nothing about vintage guitars, yet you own some...and that's all cool. Play nice or I'm gonna be very hurt. I'll have to give someone my socks & shoes. Now, you wouldn't want that for your new friend would you? Big Hern

Richard,
You have been fair with The B.H., you are one fucking ugly Limey...! Just kinding...!!!

Are you pissed on one pint again you old tart? :rofl I remember you sleeping in your pickup truck, pissed as a loose fart in a hurricane after only drinking one pint:roflAnd yeah I don't have that hot Jewish/Mexican vibe going on that you have :dang I just got the ugly Shrek Irish thing happening. :jim

And yeah, fair is fair, you n me have never had a problem, we can speak on the phone, and I remember we even did a killer burst deal together! :dude:

And while I'm blowing smoke up your arse, your B.H. Guitar Polish really IS the best in the world. I endorse it wholeheartedly. You can use my name in advertising if you like. Big James Stevenson hooked me up with some. He musta stole it from your store last time he was there. :rofl

Mr. Hernandez, Cut it with the insults. If you have any information of substance, by all means, post it. Anymore insulting ramblings will be deleted.

Follow your own advice and play nice. :jim

This thread provides Merriam-Webster with a whole new definition of cryptozoology. :dang
