    Hi I've got a basket case original dc 58 tv model that I'm going to restore

    Could anyone tell me how long the mortice goes in the body and how long is the tenon that the pickguard covers up

    The neck pocket needs rebuilding as well as the heel

    It's been really abused and won't get round to it for a while

    It's been routed for a humbucker and looks like a kahler trem, needs alot of plugging anyway

    Thanks
