    A member on another forum posted a project body up for grabs in exchange for a cheapie p90 pickup.

    I sent him two epiphone p90's for this body.....

    I joked he should send it insured, in case it got damaged....

    It arrived much sooner than I expected it to yesterday, so I got to work opening up the control cavity.

    Added the neck.

    I realized the only top loader I had was a crappy 6 saddle, and after setting it up, And hating the six saddle, made a brass three barrel into a top loader instead.

    Added a coat of shellac, and she sounds beautiful... CS Nocaster pickup, stacked vol/tone pot, flush mount straplocks....

    Those vintage tone termites are very expensive. They just don't make them like that any more.
