Has anyone done this mod? If so what was the cost and did you feel it was worth the change.

I did it on an S470 that I put a moses neck on. I did it myself using an oscillating drum sander. With graphite you have to sand it and then place gelcoat and finish sand it but with wood you would just sand it and use an oil finish. Really an easy mod and I think you will definitely like it.

The expensive part is the refinishing, either a full new refin or a good blend to existing finish. Mine was blended, and still ran about $200. But then, you'd never know it wasn't factory unless you knew what you were looking for.

I'm not sure if I'd do it again with a hard finish, but if I were getting a new body made or modding an oil finish, yes - a no brainer.
