Seller says he has the pickguard and mounting hardware put away.
Anyway, I saw that it has a floating bridge, which scares me, since I play somewhat hard and tend to hit the bridge. I suppose I could just glue it down? _________________ 10 PRINT "Bite Me!"

Edit: Haha, ^ that. It's never gonna be good for anything heavier than rockabilly type stuff.
Never knew they came in that color. Maybe an early model (which isn't a bad thing). My dad has one we got in 2003, and at that time (and even today) the only colors available were natural and vintage burst. In terms of low action and "speed", it's seriously one of the best playing guitars I've ever picked up. Especially if you put flatwounds on it.
Anyway, I wouldn't glue down a floating bridge unless you plan on never selling it. It floats partially so you can tilt it for intonation if necessary. I never had a problem with it moving...the string pressure is enough to hold it in place. But I don't play hard either.
In my experience, floating footy bridges tend to get kinda stuck in place. Just get the best intonation possible and only ever change one string at a time. I have wooden shortscale bass ones (Beatles style violin) and plastic guitar ones (Kent Polaris) that do fine with light strings, I always mark where the bridge is meant to be and they never seem to have slid away.
Heavier strings actually pose more of a risk to it moving back & forth or side to side by now, like if you bend strings (which the old jazz guys didn't). _________________

fran & paul are some of the original gangstas of the JS days when you'd have to say "phuck"
