Nice guitar!! I've kinda been lucky with that guitar, I've never seen one in person. Which is good cause I would buy it on the spot even if I didn't have the money for it.

Shes a beauty. i think i'm going to take the pick guard off.

the first major work that will be done to it will be a new nut.. then i'll decide if it needs new tuners etc.

It probably needs better pickups, but i'm enjoying the sound out of them right now, so i'll wait for that.

Nice guitar Mike. I got a new "addition" last Friday. I'll be posting some pictures of it in a few minutes.

Shes in the shop right now getting a new bone nut. After that i'm going to re evaluate the tuners situation and consider upgrading them.. She should be stage ready by then.
