Some high frets needed to be glued down along with cleaning up the sloppy graphite nut and this guy was playing good again. Interesting guitar with a Strat body, master volume (humbucker coil tap pull) and 3-way rotary pickup selector. No tone controls. Balls out.

vintage modified 51
Poor fretwork is to be expected on a guitar that currently retails for $180*. A bunch of fret ends were loose and caused all sorts of buzzing. Here I'm using superglue and clamps to make them sit back down. A very cool guitar once you sort out the factory's hasty setup work.
*this is a 1st generation '51 with the current reissues retailing $180.
