I know I wasn't thrilled with some of the original Historic hardware put on my R8 .. not only was it not historically accurate but it just didn't look or sound " Vintage " Here are some of the upgrades I've made to my 58 so far .. DMC . jackplate , pokerchip w/nut , pointers , M69 rings , ver 2 PAF covers , Kluson repro tuners , Truss cover .. Vintage Clone . pickguard , 50's knobs Luxe . repro Bumblebee's CTS . 500k audio taper pots ...with more to come I'm sure .. like a set of DR V's ? \ What have you guys done so far ??
