    I initially got the guitar in pretty dilapidated shape, and decided it'd be a good idea to build it up for my nephew who just started playing. Sanded it down, stained it with Minwax Jacobean and then 3 coats of satin poly. It came with a set of vintage Gotoh tuners, and I'm keeping them on the guitar.

    I used the stock harness, but switched over to 50s wiring. Bridge is a Gibson 490T, had some confusion about what it was, but I think based on output it's a 490T (8.4~k). Neck is a stock Epi Alnico Classic but it's got an inline bass cap to clear it up. Probably going to replace it with a p94, but I'm leaving that up to him.

    All in all I think it turned out well. Here it is with my '05 Standard I converted to p90s.
