If you can’t find someone you trust locally. He’s not in TN but he’s great with old amps. You don’t have to send the cab and speakers. He took care of my 1960 Les Paul amp.
Come on guys...more photos, please!
Here's my K-19 with my Masterbuilt on the right and my personal build on the left.
This amp is incredibly loud for only 19 watts. Pushing a G12H30 55hz Celestion
Like said before, clean to mean with just the volume know.
I’ve purchased necks from Warmoth and Musikraft recently. You can custom order what you want which is nice from either. Warmoth seems to be a bit quicker right now. The two necks from Warmoth needed a bit more fret work than the Musikraft but that’s not a very good sample size to be meaningful...
I agree with highnumbers about the chemical stripper. I would actually try some rubbing compound first. It’s controllable and less aggressive than wet sanding. Go to an automotive paint supply store and ask for an aggressive compound.
Back in the day I just drilled two more holes in the 3 hole neck plate to make it a 5 hole attachment. My cousin still has that guitar. It was a pain drilling through that plate if I remember correctly.
