I've always like how this guitar looked. I was comparing one of my guitars with his replica and I think that they look simular. I need to get a zebra pickup for the neck, change the volume and tone knobs, get an amber switch tip and get different tuners. I have a zebra in the bridge now and just need to remove the cover, so I'm almost there. Shouldn't cost too much to convert. I can see my guitar is more amber color and his looks more red/orange. Maybe the picture has been enhanced for the photo. Maybe some of you guys with a photo shop program could give my guitar some color to see how it compares. Thanks.

I kinda like the looks of yours much better. Keep your own look is much better and more original than to copy someone elses look. But if it is that important to you then do what you must. Yours is really nice looking!
Best Regards!

Thanks for that comment. I would be changing it just for fun. My guitar is really beat up. Checking on the top and parts of the sides. My nice guitars I keep original, not that this isnt a nice guitar, but it wasn't original when I bought it. Thanks again.

Don't mess with it, those early 1960 reissue models are highly collectable.

Met Slash at Namm this past Janaury. Be original and keep your guitar the way you want it. Don't be a copy cat, you are not Slash. Have your own identity. Nice guitar you have there in the picture.:RoCkIn

Brock -

Just get a set of reflector knobs for it and be done....quick and easy visual change that will actually be "Historically Correct". That was by far the best of the guitars of yours I've played (except for the 59' Junior)
