Once the 760J's go into production, could they be adapted to form the basis of a new F series? With controls mounted on the body and two pick ups like the late 60's F's?

I know I'd order one - but then again I might be the only one who would?

Every F-series Ric I've had my hands on has been quite thin (about the same depth as a standard 300-series model). That said, photographs of the earliest F models give the appearance of greater depth -though I could be dead wrong.

All that aside, I want a Jazzbo AND an F model!

The 50's - early 60's "F" series are KILLER guitars ! ! !

late 60's "F" series just don't have the same mojo ~~~

MPN - I may be no guitar god, but the late 60's F series has way more mojo! A cool sophisticated kinda mojo too!

Well 8,

I guess it might have just been my opinion and some 10-12 people who were in Norm's Rare Guitars in Reseda, CA, where there were both side by side. EVERYBODY'S eyes were attracted to the 58', which got many comments. Being my girlfriend (at the time) parked her Bentley coupe right in front of the place, I was afforded the pleasure of playing BOTH of them (go figure).

They had TOTALLY different personalities, (tone) as the 58' had a much deeper (fuller) sound like my Gretsch. The 68' was much 'brighter' like an ES 335. They were both GREAT guitars . . . just different . . .

Maybe a POOR choice of wording on my part . . . No offense intended . . .
