Thread: Brazilian rosewood bridge and fingerboard on d25m ?

  1. #1

    Brazilian rosewood bridge and fingerboard on d25m ?

    Hi all,

    I did some reading on the subject on this forum and found a post from Hans stating that guild used brazilian RW for bridges and fingerboards until the late 70s, and showed an exemple of a d25m.

    I made me wonder if my own 79 d25m had brazilian rw since it looks quite different from my other guitars.

    Not sure how to post picture so they might come as an answer to this first post.

    Looking forward to hear your thoughts on the matter :)

    Hans said my '76 D-25M is likely Braz bridge and fingerboard.

    Y'got the right idea but think those images can only be seen if one logs into that Strat forum, think they're hosted as attachments there as opposed to direct links to the actual .jpeg files.
    A hosting site like Imgur stores 'em as actual image files, that's what this site needs to link to.
    But to the main point, I thought Hans had said they had Braz blanks suitable for fretboards and bridges even into the '80's, or maybe the point is they began reserving it for higher-end models.
    Equally if not more likely is that my memory's yet again experiencing the corrosive effects of waking up every day.
    In any case yes the probability your D25 has Braz is high.

    Ah I was so naive and thought I found an easy way to post pictures here since I already posted them on another forum in the past :)
    Will try again !

    Yeah the links work (and that's ok, we know that posting pics can be a little problematic here) but will they show up when the "insert image" function is used?
    Lessee:



    Oh my those are big ones.

    Ok the trick is to copy the pic once you can see it in Imgur, then use the insert image image icon to paste the image file into.
    I have also noticed that pics copied from a different browser than the one you use for this forum don'ty alwys work; example if I copy an image in Chrome and attempt to link it here where I'm using Explorer, it virtually never works (anymore)
