Edit - Photobucket broke all the links to my pics and despite the 70%+ of remaining free space, will not allow me to upload pics, so I've moved everything to Imgur.
I have always loved these. I scored a used one for a great deal - hardware, neck, and body were in excellent shape, but the finish was incredibly rough. After some research, I discovered that I could treat it as any automotive grade finish, but had to move cautiously due to not having a paint depth tool, so the thickness of the clear coat was in question. Here are the before and after pics.
Notice the dull reflectivity of the lightsources - these should be deep, glossy, and sharply defined. There was also some UV damage, where a yellowed sheen was apparent (in person - hard to photograph this due to the color). These pics are unedited - no filtering.
Process: Wet sand 1500-2000 > Wool pad + Meg's Ultimate Compound > Softer Wool pad + Meg's Ultimate compound > Orange pad + Meg's Ultimate Polish > White pad + Wolfgang TSR > Black pad + Wolfgang Finishing Glaze > Meg's Ultimate wax = not perfect, but....as the upper layer of the old clear was removed, this gorgeous metallic red/pink color became apparent. I was not expecting to keep this color, but having seen it, my plan to refinish it to a Desert Sun Yellow + Gold Pearl finish has been staved off.
I've got a bit of a crush on these pickups at the moment - Dimarzio Gravity Storms - never loved Dimarzio before and took a risk. Very organic with thick and chewy midrange and classic strat tones while split - no artificial midrange/****ed wah tones. Middle pickup is a BK 63 wearing an IBZ cover (which has had the printing buffed off).
