Probably not. Lennon didn't have it sanded down or the pickguard removed until 68 after they came back from Rikkikesh (sp?). Until then, it had a sunburst finish. I think Harrison had one too. McCartney definitely did -- he was the first to buy a Casino in 65, I think. His also was a sunburst. It's the guitar McCartney used, for example, for the solo on "Ticket to Ride". So, for now, I think I'll keep the pickguard!

The one problem I have with that guitar - and it's a beautiful guitar - is the pickguard. Epi pickguards - at least on the semi-hollows - always look a little tacky to me. But what do you do? Take the pickguard off and reveal a couple of unsightly holes - I don't care how neatly drilled they are, they're still HOLES - or leave it on and spoil the natural beauty of the guitar?

Your decision, Tim!

:D :D :D

Nice. Very, very nice.

I'm holding out for a Gretsch White Falcon, but I am still exceedingly jealous.

Thanks. By the way, Vic, I think I like the pickguard. A bit of tacky can be a good thing!
