    i Was thinking About how I didn’t acquire any new gear last year and wanted to start 2019 off in the right direction.

    Pelham blue explorer inbound! I’ll update the thread with pics.

    It has a TOM / stoptail but I have an extra FR sitting around. I also have a router I’m not afraid to use. Jus sayin...

    is it one of those Cozart ones on ebay?
    IF so:
    I am curious to know the overall build quality of the bones ie body / neck etc.

    I have been tempted for a while; a different seller had those up last year.

    If not, I am still very interested!!

    @LongBlackTie. Seems like it would be easier to use something like a LesTrem or Stetsbar? Looks a little more steampunk but I don't think it has the same range as an FR.

    Not Cozart but like that. “King” I think.

    I’m very interested too!

    Completely agree it would be easier, but I’ve always wanted an explorer or V with a FR. and I have an extra one (FR)... probably won’t happen until summer anyway

    That's a relief to hear. In my little world, the words "Gibson" and "router I'm not afraid to use" just don't go together...

    I would comment on this thread, but cannot because there are no pictures and it therefore does not exist.
