Thanks for thinking of me Ron. I do have a lot of MIJ laying around. I found a cone and spider that fits and ordered it. Just have to wait for the post. I'll be asking the Nation about details of assembly when i get it. My body has a sound board inside suspended about an inch off the back. I've not seen that before. ?? This will be interesting.

Hi Ron, sorry but i don't have either of the items you're looking for. There's a nice Tel-Star up on ebay right now, but i don't have the badge or bar. Good luck with your search. I just got a reso husk (Regal) that needs a cone. I have a big cone, but not big enough. I may adapt the one i have or start looking. ..... Dave

You should hear Lars (Lars Carlson...) play the piano and sing sometime... I haven't played much the past few years but have been blessed to be able to play with him at times. Very talented and down to earth. I am gonna try to get over there more often- as soon as that Stillwater bridge is open again... Gotta start playing more too and polish up a bit- getting rusty! lol
