    Wow what a guitar!!

    I got this one used for a stupid price. The bridge pickup was missing, as well as the strap buttons. The neck pickup was replaced with something. No clue what.

    So I installed a new set of Pickups, replaced all the wiring, switch and pots. Installed some locking tuners. Tuned to drop C.

    I like it, but everything looks good in front of that wall of noise boxes.

    Nice rescue!

    I’d like to bring my fiddles over so I can have them photographed in front of the wall of Marshalls:D
