After much soul searching, I have decided to list my 57 junior here. Probably the cleanest one out there. I'm sure I'll regret this.
I acquired it about a year ago, but have decided I'm not a single pickup person, it's really too mint to gig with, plus it cost me a lot of dosh and I need to recoup some as the restoration of a 1956 bassman is going over budget....(remind me to never buy a vintage amp on a whim, and to never trust NoTom guitars in that respect).
So here goes. I've lots of photos, but the best thing would be to see it in the flesh - I live in East Finchley in North London.
Bad bits first: it's had a pickup rewind (to vintage specs). That includes (hard to spot) evidence of a resolder of the end wire where it meets the pots. Oh, and the 7th fret dot marker looks like it is newer than the rest.
Good bits - everything else. I've cut and paste the report I got from 'Stairway to Kevin' of Denmark St who looked it over, fettled it, and took lots of photos I can provide.
I've not seen a cleaner one (case included). David Pym has a similar one (but I think this is cleaner) on at £8,995 at the moment. ATB has good clean ones on at the moment for over £8k but they seem to sell out very quickly. Kevin valued it at £8,500. The last but one owner bought it for an eye-watering £12,500 from the now defunct vintage and rare Denmark St (see receipt in last photo).
Priced at £7500, now £7,250.
Might consider a PX for a Huber Krauster ii (2 pick up version) with bigsby if it weighs under 8 lb (bad back) - or something similar. https://imgur.com/l7W98R7.jpghttps://imgur.com/rSdSP7M
Lots more photos available or can be taken, but best to see it in the flesh.
