    Well used ME1s - here's mine, lets see yours!

    I bought my Nov 2006 ME1 in Feb 2009, and it was my main guitar for nearly 3 years until I bought my PS Sigs. For the first year or so it was used at home and rehearsals only, then I started gigging it too. As a result, it's been in constant use and is showing just a touch of wear....

    I'm planning on cleaning it up this weekend with a fret polish re-string and setup, so I've just grabbed some pics as a before shot in its current state. The pickup covers I'm leaving alone as they match dulled bridge and bridge posts, and the pitted tuning pegs.

    So lets them - who else has an ME1 full of character???

    FBJ ME1 DC the day I picked her up:


    And now...

    Tarnished pickup covers:


    Dulled bridge posts:


    Pitted tuning pegs:


    Glossy spot from my hand resting between the bridge and volume pot:


    Fretboard needs a clean and fret polish:


    The back is in good shape, nice grain sink:


    Couple of dings (there are more over the guitar, especially along the edges):

    Sweet looking ME Twin. I love it when a guitar has the character from being played. I believe I might be receiving one of these myself.

    Thanks guys - it's a great guitar. Really bright and spanky compared to how some folks describe their Braz guitars as 'dark'. Mine is like a Tele on steroids, so I guess I got a good one. Hence it getting played a lot.....

    You wish, dude!

    I'm looking forward to cleaning her up, and may give her a run out at band rehearsal. She's too good to sit in a case!
