    Holy mackerel, I feel so good I could get rid of my OHIP tomorrow, don'cha know der', bud? :laugh2:



    If you need a translation, that's Canadian for "I'm super stoked" :laugh2:



    Can't wait to start fitting all the hardware on. I swear that's my favorite part of the whole process. :thumb:

    My 2012 Traditional had Creamtone aged hw and plastics - knobs, pointers, switch tip, pickguard, Pickguard bracket, Pickup rings, poker chip, switch nut, and Jack plate installed by the previous owner. I think they look great. However, I identify as a pickguard off type, so it is in the case.

    Pretty much all the plastics are from Creamtone or sourced through Creamtone...

    TruVintage 59 knobs, poker chip, Authentic 59 pickguard, and Wizz Rings, all on my Vaschenko that came with the Monty PAFs and Faber bridge/TP.

    So it finally happened, I met the great Lonnie Gilbert a few months ago. He drove down to meet me and hang out when I was working in Georgia. I can say first hand, that he rocks and is an amazing guy to hang out with. He also brought down the late led zep #1 they put together for me to play, damn was it incredible

    well it’s taken me 4 years... but I’ve eventually gotten around to upgrading the plastics on my ‘13 Trad. I also grabbed some aged tail piece studs to go with the Faber hardware that has been ageing naturally since December ‘13. I’d say it’s a perfect match!

    really impressed with everything. I like how not everything matches perfectly, there’s a slight difference between the scratch plate, pickup rings and switch ring. I did my usual trick with the dremel and made the switch tip shorter.
