Joeb, I'm very envious! I'm not a "fixer upper" and to find one in mint condition would be very attractive!

All is good, the seller paid for the fix. Very happy now with the Super Chet. It just fits my large hands. I have ordered the new wiring, S/W's and pots. Bigsby arrived. Good stuff

Beautiful! However, where are all of those switches that made it so famous?? It was all about the looks!

All the pots on the pick guard were failing, the wiring was shot. No after market or NOS to be had so I went with the Country Gent style with a twist. It's everything I ever wanted in a guitar.
All of her old parts will be put in a Shadow Box and hung on the wall.
