Not sure if I'm too late, but if you buy it, make sure the area by the bridge isn't bowing at all. If it is, that's a $$$$ fix for something that probably wouldn't be worth it.

The official thrift/discount store bragging thread - Part II (Return to the Thunderdome) - Page 2166post #32477 of 510953/18/16 at 9:13am
Trying to catch up. I was out for spring break with the kids and grandkids.
Spent 4 days in Oklahoma near the Texas Border. Thrifted a little during the day (will have to post pics later as everything is still in the car) and each night had a bonfire!
I found a few things yesterday back at home that I didn't buy but wondered if someone else was interested. The estate sales are still going on today:
Bicycles! Huffy, Schwinn, other brands I don't know. All older bikes priced from $50-100. But, discounts daily at the sale.
Anybody need a Vespa? only 7,000 miles.
Found several Patagonia for women. I left them because they wanted $15-35 each
I did buy one thing at a sale yesterday:
Gucci sunglasses (minty!) with the Box!
At one stop in Oklahoma I found 6 Oxxford suits even reunited two orphans. HOWEVER, as I looked them over, EACH ONE had multiple moth holes.post #32478 of 510953/18/16 at 9:17amReal or embossed calf?
This, and an Eton shirt, are the only two things I found at a GW store opening this morning. I may have missed out on some shoes. The suit rack was a total disappointment (almost all orphans, and even then nothing of note). There were maybe 25 ties, total. Housewares and furniture looked well stocked, but that section was a madhouse.post #32479 of 510953/18/16 at 9:27ampost #32480 of 510953/18/16 at 9:45amRevisiting the orphan vs. SC debate I started a few weeks ago... I am assuming that if any of us saw this on the racks, we'd automatically think "orphan."
... but it's sold as a SC.

Makes me regret passing on a twill J.Press jacket I thought was an orphan yesterday.post #32481 of 510953/18/16 at 9:54amQuote:Originally Posted by Van Veen

I really don't understand this debate, if you like it and want to wear it, do it. When it comes to something like a blue blazer who cares how it's sold? Some things are clearly part of a suit, but there's a lot of items that you can wear separately, if you look good screw the tag. Just my two cents, no need for anyone to get upset and write me a paragraph.post #32482 of 510953/18/16 at 9:58ampost #32483 of 510953/18/16 at 10:04ampost #32484 of 510953/18/16 at 10:20ampost #32485 of 510953/18/16 at 10:31ampost #32486 of 510953/18/16 at 11:49amQuote:
I've personally always had good luck with bridge re-glues, or installing a new one. Now neck resets, that's hard to get right and usually costs $$$$post #32487 of 510953/18/16 at 11:57amQuote:
not reglues. I'm talking about when the top warps from string tension. I found a 1966 epiphone acoustic at a music go round one day that they had marked $65. I thought I had one of the craziest scores ever. i noticed that the intonation was off a bit and the action was terrible. held it up and saw that the top was arched and warped. called my luthier friend and he said that he could fix it but it would be at least $400 (and probably even more). He would need to take the whole thing apart, flatten the warped wood and reconstruct it.post #32488 of 510953/18/16 at 12:01pmQuote:Originally Posted by My Main Man

ahh yea, I should read closer next time. Any kind of warping on the top is going to be a pain in the ass to fix
I have a '73 Guild D25 and LOVE it! I hope that thrift score works out.post #32489 of 510953/18/16 at 12:44pmpost #32490 of 510953/18/16 at 1:14pm
