Re: Bargain find...

Mine is the beigeish label, made in Taiwan, Republic of China. Serial # is on the brace on the top you can see looking in the soundhole. Like I said, it comes out to 1980 model.

Re: Pinless Bridge ?

Re: Suggestions for building up (increasing thickness) of a neck

I agree with the "pop the fingerboard off and lay some veneer" school of thought. Other methods would be more time consuming.

Very talented performer. He brought popularity to a genre that wasn't given much respect in mainstream. RIP, Earl.
