    The le transformation. BTW, I know the pup cover is for the bridge, but for $40 I figured what the heck

    Some waffle back tuners.... But I'm a bit upset at the people that sold them to me, because they're supposed to be able to read my mind and know that I would need the off-set tuner bushing8-[ ... LOL!

    Once I get her intonated and find out where the bridge saddles are positioned. Then I'll see if I have enough bridge saddle travel to re-position the bridge straight rather than at an angle.

    Looks good! I really love those Brown Faded models, dirt cheap but look and play like a dream and they're perfect for experimental modding.

    What Dimarzio pickup are you using? How does it sound. It gold knobs look surprisingly ok.

    hmmm... are you gonna re-drill the bridge stud to level out the harmonica? it looks like a bus slant parked in a parallel slot.

    The gold hardware looks great on the brown Faded, but that stuff turns to crap in a hurry here at the Jersey seashore due to the saltly air.
    Any modifications I do will be in nickle, it looks good and holds up much better without having to spray the guitar down with CRC every day... :-\

    I pretty much like my brown Faded the way it is with the one exception of the uncovered pickups, the nickle covers I ordered should be here by today or tomorrow...

    I wouldn't mind getting the "SG" truss rod cover either..... ;)

    Looks good..... O0
