In the process or upgrading/re-wiring it 50's. New.....Grover tuners, Proline bridge (Tone pros later), CTS Pots, Clear Speed Knobs, SwitchCraft input and 3-Way toggle, Vitamin Q PIO caps, Braided wire. Rio Grande BBQ bridge & Rio Grande Texas neck . A good start since this thing was all metric with junk parts, even the tuners. So there has to be a little luthier work ... boring/drilling to upgrade it to standard sizes installations. I know its like putting perfume on a pig, but its the best I can do for now.

Couple of pics when I first got it.
More to come after rebuild....

Don't let anyone dictate your actions but yourself.
