1 Toxophilite 1 year ago I picked up an early 64 Country Club off the bay a while back. Talked the guy down some. It was obviously one that had been cannibalized to sell the hardware (like you see a lot on ebay) and then purchased and re-hardwared with reissue gear. It had TV Jones Classics, the original space control bridge, belt buckle pad in good shape and mutes, everything else was reissue gretsch stuff all in too shiny gold. The original case came with it too. Of course it need a refret..and the binding someone had put on was the wrong sort, was done not so great and was kind of coming off. Here it is stripped of binding and frets. It has a nice looking laminate spruce top, I'm going to wipe all the old nitro off (acetone) rebind and refret it and maybe paint it green if it's too beat to leave blonde. It won't be exactly cadillac green if I do and likely not metallic but close and pretty. Then I'll clear coat it in nitro. I have a gold bigsby and other bits too. That's the plan so far. neck set is great and the fretboard looks great with lots of life left. the frets on it were the originals.
