    Sorry guys, I'll get pictures tomorrow. It's a '55 Junior.
    I played it for over an hour when I got home from work
    through both my amps('69 Traynor, 1974X)and it sounded
    unbelievable!

    I'm loving it.:banana:bow

    How do you like the 1974X? Is it similar to the Bluesbreaker?

    What do you mean "I was not expecting"?

    Did it get delivered earlier than you thought it would be?

    I've never owned a Bluesbreaker, but I love the 1974X!

    No, I wasn't expecting it. I have been talking with my very good friend Bob(Caretaker)who owned it for a while about buying it, but I was not expecting it at all.

    I'll be doing a good bit of playing today...I love the sound of this guitar! It ain't no closet queen..shes been played!

    Wow, what a relic. I love the way it looks. I want to have my Junior relic'd. It looks too pretty. I spoke to the guys at RS a while ago. They'd first strip off the poly finish, re-finish it, then relic it. The process was something $500+. nI'm going to save your photos to use an example.
