What's up Jonesy? Can't wait for the 50's wiring kit! (No rush though). Once I get that fitted in my R7 I have an old 89 MIK Epi that feels and plays wonderful but all the electronics are terrible. I want to make a project out of it and replace all pickups and electronics with US standard quality parts. May be hitting you up for some advice. Thanks.
love your avatar - I've got a 1446 as well, though mine is missing the pickguard. i've wanted to start a thread about them, seeing as how they have those awesome gibson PAF minis in them. you've good taste in guitars!
