Head and neck removed
So this Japanese pre-law-suit old-timer came into the house via the Gumtree Motorcycle Diaries. It was found on a fascinating visit to an Alloa wheeler dealer, an interesting hour of greasy biker history, cash, antique banjos and guitars. I thought about it for a bit and as if by magic the pearl dot neck was miraculously replaced by a Gibson after some sweaty joinery and rigorous sanding. From this process a pretty decent shredder has emerged and strangely the old neck has improved the donor guitar. An unexpected double success from a £40 piece of surgery.
