A 1980's era Maestro (as used by Tugga on the 89 Ashes tour).

Not sure whether to refurb or leave as is (I have taken the tape off - the bat has "tan lines").

Also removed munted grip in favour of a lime green one with blue tape.

I have a very similar (painted) maestro from my dad!

I have this exact bat still with one of the original grips on it (they came standard with two grips)! Bought it new from from GCCC in Brisbane in 1986. Still taps well too.

@Northern monkey - +1
@play-yourself-in - it does.
@Dooey__ - ha.
@Wickets-then-runs - very nice.  I used to get the GCCC catalogues as a kid.  They were cricket porn.  The Maestro was one of the top-shelf bats I lusted after in those catalogues - along with the DF Magnum, G-N GC Master, G-N Hookes Hurricane, Symonds Super Tusker, SS Jumbo, and the County Ultimate.

Got this for 12 posted from ebay. It has that 'vanished'? Finish but is practically unused. Bouncing a ball on it left seam marks.
