Well, it is a nice brown Epiphone G400.
Control cavity plate was all wavy. I am pretty sure I wouldn't find one that fit, so I made one out of clear polycarbonate (Lexan) I sanded.
Whew, boy, you like your projects! Looks great, sounds killer, too. I couldn't tell, did you swap the pickups or not?
If you like the strings over the bar, you *could* try counter-sinking the stopbar joints, too. I'm pretty simple with that stuff, tho. Just a decent guitar with good pickups is all I need.
Thanks and nope, pickups are OEM.
The neck was set too flat in this one, it's missing 1 or 2 degrees of tilt, that's why I had to countersink the bidge bushings. As it is, I can't top wrap the tail because string will fly over the saddles without touching them. I think that even if I decked the stopbar directly to the surface, like with no posts, a topwrap wouldn't work.
Well now ...
This beauty is gone to a good fellow that will enjoy it, Charles Jr Quinn that posted about replacing tuners on it. I still have two of them, I'm a happy camper.
