    The last update of photos was 7 weeks ago, but I'm not rushing them... but yes, I do wonder how it looks now.

    I just received some teaser pics of the THR4. Also a pic of what it looked like before. I am told the fretboard isn't finished yet. Hope you like the pics!

    Old looking keys.

    Color looks great.

    Looks just like my 53/57 conversion.

    Thin switch nut. Nice board, can't wait till it's finalized/aged.

    This one checked really nicely.

    A set of nice barrel knobs that came with the vintage harness/circuit.

    Gibson logo moved down. Some nice tuner bushings to complete the look.
