An early Royale - A TV-DCS Junior from 1982 in Beige.

1982

Mahogany body and neck with Rosewood fingerboard, Ebony head-face 
and Mother-of-Pearl inlays. 24 5/8" scale length. Kent Armstrong pickup.
Calton case. Colour Beige.
Kev used her for rehearsals and gigs for a few years, but she was sold in about 1986.

 

Now owned by D.T. Giles

The '82 Junior in 2003 - She needs a restoration Job !

She was originally 'Beige' (the top of the page), and was bought by Big Norm.
At some point she was
re-sprayed and the scratch-plate was removed..... and she has also taken a bit of a battering over the years. 
D.T. Giles bought her a while ago and is hoping to get her restored to her original condition as soon as he can.
