  1. Progress! IMAG0107 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMAG0106 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMAG0105 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr I am very pleased with the overall look of the decal and the knobs on it. Very classy.
  2. Things get looser with old age I am sure.
  3. A little red vs blue. I did a demo of my '69 and my Japanese reissue. They sound very similar. After the demo, I raised the pickups in the reissue a bit and it sounds even closer. Slightly different, but very close. You can be the judge though.
  4. New competition family photo. I thought I should get some pictures of all three of my competitions together. (1968 US Competition Red, 1969 US Competition Blue, and my '69 Reissue Japanese Competition Ocean Turquoise Metallic.)

  5. I did a side by side of red and blue. Here is blue and blue. The Japanese OTM is very similar to this Competition Blue that has greened. It is a bit lighter and as you will see the decals are different. (And the tuners since my actual '69 has F tuners.) The American tummy cut goes in deeper. Sorry for my ugly mug reflected in the picture of the back.

  6. I got an update email. I guess the circuit wasn't sounding very good so thepastrecedes did a different one. Not sure what this one is most like, but here are pictures including one with the decal.

  8. Me as well. It shows that it was well used. I like it a lot. It definitely got some sun in its life.
  9. Here are my two vintage comp stangs together.

  10. My thoughts on this one. The finish is way more checked and yellowed than my Red one. The neck on this one is pretty "loved" but the roughness actually is consistent enough to feel comfortable. The larger frets are cool. I have to be careful to keep the high E from rolling off the edge. Just getting used to it. The tuners on this one move very well. The neck switch wasn't working and I knew the tone pot was a push pull so I got to work on it right away. First I raised the tremolo bar. It was almost too low to get strings under. Since the adjustment screws are either full of gunk or stripp

  12. This arrived from Canada today. So sweet. Little words first. Just pictures.

  13. Thanks! I am also a big fan. It is nice because it makes you focus on playing vs fiddling with settings, knobs, pickups, etc.
  14. Japanese has no gap between the control plate and the pickguard. IMG_3519 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr American has a gap. IMG_3520 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr Sound wise they are actually very similar. I was impressed how close they were really. The headstock decals don't match. Japanese one has Black Fender with a larger and longer "Mustang" part as well as the Offset part. The American is white with more Pat. info under it. No Offset part and a smaller thinner "Mustang" text. Fun comparison. The necks feel almost the same in shape. I was really surprised by this. The Ja
  15. Got out Red and Blue and did a side by side and sound check. It was really interesting actually. Visually similar. The pickguard on Blue (Japanese) is slightly different. IMG_3507 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr IMG_3506 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr Japanese contours are more defined and hard edged. The American (Red) is more gradual. IMG_3508 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr Japanese one has Klusons similar to Red. IMG_3509 by Hentai No Baka, on Flickr Red (American) IS slightly thinner but the overall weight was actually closer than I remembered. They feel about t
  16. Strings are on. Impressions: AWESOME! It sounds great. Simple no nonsense. I really like it. Plug it in and play!

  17. I think that might cut the bridge humbucker?

  20. Loads of pictures as promised. It does indeed say 15JAN66B in the pocket for what it is worth. It had a massive shim that I removed. I took some pictures of the guts. Pickups are stamped 6 6 6 so I have been calling it the devil. It is need to see shielding nailed in with a small finish nail. It is stamped 109 on the body under the guard. The switches needed some contact cleaner and work great now. Vintage bodies feel thin compared to the Japanese reissue. Normal I am guessing? The Kluson Deluxe tuners look stock. I see no signs they were changed. The neck is in fantastic shape. It even has a
  21. h8mtv etched the F into a metal plate. I got it with a Jagmaster that he sent to me.
