I didn't mean to imply Schaller came up with the idea, but using the idea I think is a great idea.

.DB they should have two screws on each side for accurate till adjustment.

Houndhome - I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say you probably said that same thing about "trying not to add more since storage space...." at around guitar 35 or 40. 😂 

I did tell my partner about 10 years ago that I would thin things out a little and sold around 13,but then added about the same amount

(but better quality,which included 4 of the 5 Heritages).Fortunately Laine is also a collector so understands the illogical driving force !

Yeah, I did that too. I told her that from here on out I would only get a new guitar after selling two. That lasted about a month.....I sold two, bought one and then bought two more.

Welp. So it begins... I just placed my first Sweetwater order. I guess it's all downhill from here. Lol

Gitfiddler - So helpful of you to mention that! Lol

As it would happen... I looked at them after I got my "starter stuff" in my cart. Just looking to be looking. I can honestly say I didn't see one I'd want more than the one I have. 🙂

I talked to Marv today and that is the prototype he made at home. He said he hand carved that one.  What a piece of history! 

Solid mahogany slab. He said they where having a hard time finding curly maple they liked at that time.

Gitfiddler - Sorry, no idea why it just reposted that. 

Skydog52 - handcarved.... I can't imagine. I absolutely love the history here!

Bolero - thank you! It's been beyond exciting for me learning about it. I did find out a little more that I haven't posted yet, but I'm waiting to get it back from being set up, (hopefully on Wednesday) to post what I learn from them as well. A person here suggested that during set up I have them look for a brand name on the back of the bridge, tailpiece, and I told them to look at back of pickups as well. I'm anxiously waiting to see what they say about that as well! 

Yoslate - Thanks. Though I'm sure it's easier to make a debut when you are (unknowingly) bringing a mystery star to the show. Lol
