The Very Last FITK Guitar Post!

These are my two newest guitars, both eBAY specials (less than $100 each!)

One is a “Snakehead” Fender Esquire copy. This guitar is based on the very first regular (not Hawaiian) guitar prototype that Fender designed in 1949. I bought it new, but put in a new bridge and, just to be period correct, slotted head screws. It is a really nice  player (after I lowered the nut), the ultimate in simplicity:

Below is a Fender Thinline™ twelve-string copy, built from a kit. This had real problems but, by re-drilling some holes and working on the nut, I brought it around:

I have sworn not to buy ANY more guitars, and will definitely not post about them again.
