Hi Denny and welcome to the family. Just love the name seeing the B45 is my instrument of fav these days. If you're still in Western Canada it would be cool to connect. I'm sure we'd have a tale or two to tell and a tune or two to blend. Stay loose! Ron J.

[/QUOTE]Cool stuff guys. Just a follow up here and thanks John. I'm a fun loving guy and this is really great fun. So here are the stats on this B45. (I call it my baby boy) The folks at "Rufus' guitar Shop" here in Vancouver, BC did the research for me when I had it insured Sept, /98. Here's what it it says: (1964) Serial # 155221 (2) stamped back of peghead, model rubber stamped on back joiner strip inside. (no label) Solid spruce top with mahogany back and sides.Neck joins at 14th fret, reverse belly rosewood bridge, originally adjustable, but filled with rosewood and routed for fixed saddle, repaired neck at top nut splinted and oversprayed, Kluson Deluxe strip machine heads with cream plastic buttons, three piece mahogany neck cherry back and sides. Natural top, bridge plate replaced when adjustable part taken out. Minor pick wear at sound hole, finish checking. Factory hard- shell arch top case. No longer in production, They estimated the value of it at $2015 Cdn. at that time. There have been offers but when you label an instrument your baby there's really no way to put a price on something you derive so much joy from. My biggest thrill comes when others play it so that gives me the opportunity to hear it back and what a joy it really is when you hear your baby sing. Cheers, Ron J.
