    just rolling the idea around, its a great player and it sounds great so when. Looking at it as a whole the only thing that doesn't live up to the rest of the guitar is the finish.

    Score!

    Question - did those tuners just drop in? I have the originals on a 58 and they're shot. Want to check other options before grovers.

    Also finally was able to come up with a compromise from the seller to get a partial refund for the replacement parts so all is good!

    Nicely done! Cool guitar too....congrats!! FWIW I'd save the money on a refin to finance the next guitar or use it to get a quality refret! Either way it looks cool the way it is.

    It was already refretted, super smooth player, no buzz anywhere.
