    Well this just came together unexpectedly.. Always the vintage Japanese monger,, the post about the orange county squiers caught my eye and @surfrodguitar spoke up about a rather clean white one he had listed on eBay.. Well I don't do eBay but I do get around,, so..
    I have a new to me SQ.. I completely forgot about the orange county SQ,, till now,, hopefully I can get out a town before I go broke.. Here is my newest acquasition,, thank you surfrod..

    And yes @Roccobagadonuts its a disease that really has no cure accept poverty or death.. So keep your eye on storage wars cause when or if I loose it all (wouldn't be the first time),, the bidding on my storage locker is going to be fast and furious.. :D
    Its really to bad I didn't get outside during the day to take pictures,, the weather right now in So Cal is so beautiful.. I wish I could live here.. :(

    Interesting. It appears that I have a thicker fretboard.

    First, congrats! Cool to see the exchange happen within the forum enthusiasts!

    Also, does anyone know what's up with the pickups in this guitar? I have the same guitar, made a few weeks earlier. It also has the solid, black bobbin pickups that are different from the plastic ones with the squares in them found in most sqs? What are these pickups? Japanese made black bobbins? Anyone know?
