So after much time spent working on my guitars as well as some friends I finally got a customer (neither a friend or family member) that has sought me out to get some work done on a guitar that he doesnt play too much and wanted to make into something he picks up more often. After many e-mails of discussing some things me and the gentleman met up and finalized what he wanted done and off we went. The final to do list looked something like this: -Swap Tuners -Swap Pickups -Swap out ceramic caps for PIOs -Change cracked pickguard and put on metal jack plate -Finagle JP wiring without too much cursing -Crowning of gibson railroad ties -Final Set-up and a clean and polish. Thanks to some aggravations such as a bad soldering iron, a company taking too long to ship a new one and having to reorder from a separate company, ad then that company adding an extra $10 shipping after the final amount was shows to me and agreed upon. the job took about a month to full fill. thankfully the customer was very patient and had zero worries about a timeframe. A couple of extra things were also done such fretboard oiling as well as scraping the fingerboard so it was a bit smoother to play on and eliminating the ridges around the inlays. Also identifying the guitar as a 1997 model when the owner originally thought it was a '98.
