Hey everybody. Boy, time sure did fly. I've been meaning to post pictures of this Celebrity, finished, for a while now. I apologize for not responding to PMs over the years (I didn't know that I was getting them, still computer illiterate), I'll keep an eye out, going forward.

Being that this guitar was badly smashed and parted out, I didn't feel that it would hurt customizing (pearloid pick guard, pickups, tuners, etc.) Still cool that the body and neck numbers still match. (z0055 lives!)

Does anyone have interior labels/decals or a copy? If not, I'll have to create original art to print new ones.

Fantastic job, Jeff! It is so cool to see this guitar survive. You did an amazing job on this "restoration". How does it play?

As to the labels I am not aware of anyone who makes a reproduction of them. I would think you could come close to duplicating it. The appropriate one for that era and style is the orange oval with a black border. For the model and serial number they would use a typewriter. You can use either "Celebrity" or "Celeb. 3". I've seen both ways used commonly. Now we just have to find you a smashed up original Victoria Luggage Case to restore. ;)

See below.

Hey, sorry it took a while to get back to you.

Thanks Sarah, it plays great, great tone. Ed Elliots pickups are great.

Thank you for posting images of the labels, I am a commercial artist for a living, so I can make those within time. I think the original label disappeared when the guitar was smashed.
