Working on a project...BSB/G Vandenberg?! - Need advice and
OK, I bought this Vandenberg in need of a new paintjob and (over the course of two months) have Sanded down to bare wood and replaced the single in the neck position with a humbucker. *I can't keep any of the original color due to it being "rock-it" pink, think Pepto. *Anyway, I have a tone zone and Air Norton to go in this Poplar body, Maple/Ebony neck/FB guitar. *I have the original controls (V-T-3 way LP type switch) and Kahler spyder. *I have blue and green Stew Mac color tone stains and have mixed pretty close to the BSB stain color, but I like it a bit more blue. *I plan on burning, staining, and putting tung oil over everything that is not ebony (read:body/headstock/back of neck). *What do you think? *See any problems looming that I haven't thought of? *How exactly did Ibanez do their BSB Jems? *Also, I am thinking of changing the electronics around by buying the (ridiculously priced) EP-1111 switch from DiMarzio that was used in the JPM. *JPM owners, is the middle position (inside coils) sound worth it? *Thanks for any suggestions.
