Well, okay... here goes.... it's blood letting time. Sometimes you gotta throw a few fish back and in order to raise money for business investment, I'm selling a number of goodies not the least of which is this Deluxe. I bought this from a blue rocker in PA a few years back. It's a 2000 and it was the first Deluxe 'I'd ever seen' that had a flame cap. I'm not suggesting its rare. Too many BS artists like that on e-bay as is, but I can say that, however many flaming Deluxes there are, this is one of them and you don't see a flaming Deluxe every day unlike the 59' re-issues!
I don't know if the guy back in PA was the first owner or not. I somehow got the impression not. Whomever it was, replaced the original pickups with mini Lindy Falin P-90 Soapbars. Note the word 'mini'. At least nothing got routed. The pots and caps were also 'upgraded'. I'll say this for it, it does have a wonderful sing. I've used this on everything from Motown to ZZ Top and it handles it all very effectively. Nothing else on the instrument has been changed out, the rest of the parts are all original and there have been no breaks, cracks or repairs. I bought this guitar from the PA E-bayer on description of being a 'Players' instrument, knowing it would have some described dings. I'll give you a far better description of the cosmetic condition of the guitar than what I was given. The two photographs I've attached that show the top at close angle, will help you to see what I'm describing. There are a number of indentations in the clear coat, little pin head dings on either side of the strings where the player would norm
