    Congratulations, and welcome. Since you chose the best color I can tell you have incredibly good taste :thumb:

    I would guess your pickups are probably T Tops. Keep them, they are becoming popular and more pricey now.

    Cool Custom,dripping MoJo.:thumb:
    How do you like it? How's it compare with your R9 ?I have a 71 Deluxe and a VOS 57 Custom.They're different in tone and feel,the Deluxe is lighter,but I love them both.

    It looks so classy in with the others, with it's inlay starting on the 1st fret. It's beautiful...and that fretboard looks like black glass. It really stands out, like a red-hot momma with her tag-a-longs beside her hahaha!! j/k, they all look like killers.

    hey, I would happily put up with 12lbs of her...

    Nice rig brother. Extra clean lookin

    Correct me if im wrong but T Tops ran through 1980... 81-86 was Shaw era, still not promising shaws to everyone but in Customs its almost guaranteed
