Picked this up today. Nothing too fancy but it's an offset! I had been looking around for a duo-sonic or musicmaster for a while but hadn't seen any pop up then this appeared.

Need to tweak the action a little bit but I don't have any small enough allen keys, tomorrows mission!

Just on trademe. I was thinking about getting one of Mr. Glyns pickups for it but the original one sounds great.

This is pretty cool, although the prismatic pickguard might be a bit over the top: https://www.trademe.co.nz/music-instrum ... 069089.htm

This one looks super cool, but it's almost guaranteed to be horrific in every other way.

Yeah, no doubt. And at that price I wouldn’t want to be the one to take a gamble. I love the shape though

Long time, no post for me. Hope all you chaps are doing well. I've been enjoying the sunny weather and building a few guitars here in the U, S and A. Here's a recent on that fits the bill of this thread;

The body is made of cedar (leftover from the north entrance from the Hereford st carpark in Christchurch!), big, fat 1 inch thick strat style neck, GFS filtertrons, weird 60s Japanese vibrato I got off GrantB a long time ago.
It's a funky machine and the pickups sound great and were great value too.
1935 Martin D-45, 1942 Gibson Southern Jumbo,1950 Fender Broadcaster, 1954 Fender Strat, 1958 Gibson Moderne prototype, 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard.
1958 Fender twin, 1965 Vox AC30, 1966 Marshall JTM 45, 1977 Dumble OD Special.
Big black garbage bag full of original Klon Centaurs and TS808s.
