    Ok, had a wonderful conversation with Greg. So far it looks like she's getting the heastock repair corrected, a new holly veneer, a complete refret, a Pigtail wraparound, and maybe redo the darkback :D

    I'd leave the old wood alone...clean up the headstock repair (ie: redo, as Greg does a great and solid job), jumbo frets, 50's wiring and set up.

    Are you going to leave the wrap tail embedded in the top as in the pictures? Now would be a great time to remedy the neck angle. If you added a little wood underneath the fretboard it could be replaned for the proper angle and then covered with binding as to avoid a reset of the neck. Sounds like a great guitar will be in your hands soon either way.

    Yup, the wraptail stays where it is. It's just being changed to a Pigtail. No need to mess with the original neck joint or fretboard, as the wraptail already addressed that issue, and from what I'm told by Ryan and Greg, she plays great the way she is. Besides, taking the fretboard off may cause some mojo to fly away :laugh2:
