1 Fiendo 5 months ago From the info on this site, I see that my serial number (25008) means it's probably a 1957, but could be one of the 1000 serial numbers that ended up in 1965. My mom says she remembers her dad having it before 1965, but she was just a little girl at the time. Maybe the equipment on it can verify it's age? It is missing the low E string guide at the bridge, and the pick guard is definitely aftermarket, but other than that, it looks/sounds nice. I'd be interested to hear if anyone can tell more about it from these pics. Also, if anyone has info on where i can get the correct pick guard and a replacement string guide (or whatever it's properly called), I'd appreciate it! Also, does anyone have a clue as to the value it has? I should probably add it to my homeowner's insurance, but I don't know if it's worth 300 or 3000!
