    Coffee and a bit of oil works also.

    Looks as good as any of the Masterbuilt ultimate relics sold by The Music Zoo. Well done Nick. :applause:

    I know some people can't understand the relicing thing, and in the future we'll probably realise we're nuts as well. :shock: :naughty:

    Now...what's the next project? ;)

    I'm going to learn how to play:shock:... just a joke! Well, I'm not sure... I'm thinking 50's style Telecaster. If I decide to piece together another guitar that would probably be it.

    If I get some time I will try to make a short u-tube vid so everyone can see it in action.:dude:

    Thanks for the kind words my friend!!!

    Very well done - looks awesome :thumb: PS, that's only about the 5th time I've heard of someone actually having a dud pickup. Pretty unusual, but glad you got it worked out.

    Thanks man! Heck, I might have messed up the pickup when I was installing it, who knows... I was really careful though and don't recall any mishaps that could have damaged it. Guess everybody has some bad luck sometimes!:D
