Smile Hey, I got one...too, Jem777DY

Well, I got this off Flobay 2 months ago and when I got her she was a mess. (Lots of rust & oxidation). I tore it down, buffed out the body, sanded the neck, replaced the trem, humbuckers, single coil cover, pots & 5 way, and NOS pickguard from Rich.

Now Shes a beauty I'll never (Knock on wood) get rid of

It always surprises me how pristine they get those pyramids to look, so precise...

Re: Hey, I got one...too, Jem777DY

Thanks guys It took ALOT of elbow grease & time, but it was well worth it! She now screams like she was ment to back in 91'. The neck is smooth as silk, not even one nick in the body, and no neck joint finish cracks.
One thing I'm concerned with is the case. It seems to have turned more orange on the inside. I believe it was pink at one time.

I love the look of pyramids on clean maple
