'57 SC Jimmy Vaughn

Here's a lovely guitar, the owner is a big Fabulous Thunderbirds fan and loves the sound and look of Jimmy Vaughn's Stratocaster I'm certainly no expert on exactly what it is I think its a bit like Eric's Blackie built from bits and pieces but the escence is definately late 50's with one peice maple neck and single ply guard. Anyhow this is bassed on that guitar.

The main components were supplied to me, so it was mainly a finishing, relicing and setting up job. The owner was carefull to consult with me as to what quality of parts to get, which is always good as not everything fits together with acceptable tolerances....this one though worked out lovely. Both neck and body ageing turned out superb.
