I have an '84. They really are good guitars. Mine has Duncan Antiquities installed and it sounds amazing.Mine is very light too, bleached mahogany two piece body, balances perfectly sitting or standing. Better than a Les Paul for many reasons imho.

I wished there was a logo on that! Any way to get a replacement? Hi orys, yes you can buy the decals for £10-15 on eBay. I intended to do that butnever bothered because you can see the ghost of the original logo and lettering when you turn it into the light, you can even read the small "Springysoun...

Thanks guys. Yes it was agora le dark wine red colour and pretty beaten so I had no qualms about stripping it and painting it. I know it's not quite the correct spec for Claptons '64 but it works I think. I had to cheat the design a little to fit the '74 style SG. It was a commission and the client ...

Talking of posing images of the Telecasters, does anyone know the best image hosting for this site? I've just finished painting a "Fool" SG for someone and I fancied getting some opinions on it here. It was done on an '85 Tokai SG.

I doubt you'd worry too much about the rosewood/maple difference if you played this guitar, Luis. As I said, I was an affirmed Gibson only man until I got the Springysound. Then I properly checked out a Telecaster and that finally did it! Yes Em, I'll post some pics asap, one is a really old Breezys...
