    Was going to say, "Why is this in Historic section?..."

    Looking great! Changed the inlays and all. Loves me a BB!

    I'm hoping to get the last two done on mine.

    Not big on modding my Historics but those inlays and knobs really set that guitar apart.

    I've already done the tuners, guard, and truss cover.

    I'll have to do the aging the old fashioned way tho...

    I also have to do the last 2 inlays on couple of my Custom reissues; do we know the correct measures for those last 3 inlays?

    I believe the last two (19 and 21) are the same as the 17th. Stew-Mac sells a set.

    Last 3 inlays are different each other, but difference it's subtle.

    Thanks for checking her out :cheers:


    Questions everyone?

    Can anyone:hmm::hmm: tell from the pic, approximate year what pick guard or what guitar originally from? I don’t think it’s Gibson but it’s old and it fits :hmm:

    I'm not man enough to have my inlays done but I've changed knobs, pick guards and tuners on both my Customs but I really need to know where you got the case!

    I’ve had it for +/- 10 years and if I remember correctly eBay. I hardly open my eBay since Reverb came in to play...
