1 KCeddieB 10 months ago Those of you who own or have access to a 1957 model year Jet solidbody... perhaps you could assist a brother? I recently examined one, and was interested to observe the termination of the neck heel is different than on my '56 model year Jet solidbody. Where as my experience with earlier Jets ('56 and earlier) is that the cap that resides on the neck heel is flush to the back of the guitar... the '57 ends short of that, leaving a small shelf (see photo). Also... this observation was on a 6121, which is the only Jet with binding around it's back... so I'm curious if perhaps this something specific to that model? Thoughts?
