    the repair is solid so i dont have anything to worry about..lucky for me the rout was for a minibucker so it was only like 1/2 in. deep..like mike said $1500-1800 ..thats about the going rate for a used vos jr with the case..i kept the case so im ahead $ wise...tonewise im $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ahead..lol.. now ill find a bumblebee and put in a tonepros vtna(on the way) and either a rio grande bluesdawg or ill go for a vintage p90

    ...I'd redo it with the right P-90 and the pots with proper centralabs and a bee...drop a line to Kim...

    putting the vintage stuff back in is WELL worth it,especially in the tone department.

    i would..but i dont wanna get too deep with this gtr cuz of the head repair ,the neck pickup rout,the plugged toggle hole and all the scrapes and gouges ya know?plus its gonna need a refret...i payed 1500 for the used vos..so thats 1500 + 119 for the tone pro vtna + 350 for the refret + 600 for the vintage p90 and harness..so i would be $2570 into the gtr..i dont know if id get that back if i ever wanted to resell

    I'm no expert, but I'd go for the frets first as well. Better get her playing great, and then work on the vintage parts...

    Recommend you start a thread in the Introductions forum and comment in a couple threads so you'll qualify to send & receive PMs. I would also suggest you start your own thread in the Vintage LP forum if you want to get the best feedback on your question. Detailed pictures are always a plus. Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for the input and words of wisdom! My original post will be deleted from this thread, and I'll start a separate thread sometime this weekend.
