    Lately there has been a number of "finds" here om ST for little $. I know that most of us don't need another guitar, nor do we really want one. But when an opportunity presents itself, more likely than not, we pull the trigger, knowing that he who hesitates...……..

    Well here's one of those deals. Original issue Monoprice Route 66 Gold Top LP for $80. I knew these LP copies had good reviews, $80 (4/$20's), not gonna last.....POW! GC even called me to tell me that 2 tuner buttons were broken off, do I still want it. "Can I get a better deal?" No. "Ok ship it."

    5 yrs old, not a scratch, no wear, looks like new. I had a set of Wilkys 3 + 3, fit perfect. Found gold. Let's see your best SCORE.

    I've heard some good things about the Rt 66 LP's. That's an excellent deal if the neck is good. Is it a set neck or bolt-on?

    Neck is bolt-on, 43 wide nut w/ "C' profile. Though the body is basswood, it's got the LP weight (must be that inch thick of clear coat of the metallic gold paint).
