I’ll be honest I hadn’t noticed this thread before in all the years I’ve been here, and fully expected it was a ‘where to get McLovin’ drivers license…

Anyone know what the bolt on the side of the neck is? could be a good deal if it's a real one. 70s style!

Never seen that before but it makes sense from a functionality perspective (it's truss adjustment I'm assuming). Gretsch used to do this, although the bolt was on the heel.

It has a Warmoth replacement neck. They offer that truss rod access on the side.
