You really are at the finishing line! I guess that seeing the end of the makeover must be an amazing moment! :cheers2:
I think you'll be missing the updates though. It's easy to develop an addiction for Florian's early morning emails!
I will also be picking the guitar up in person when it is...
@LesPauli: Fretboard work looks amazing! Any news on the aging? I can only imagine how impatient you are at the moment!
Tension has starting to build-up on my side too and my guitar isn't ready for finishing yet :)
I'm curious now, were you able to measure the values of the centralab pots? Nowadays you see a lot of them that have drifted in the 600-700k range. So that might contribute to the effect you have experienced.
Congrats! Normally I'm not a fan o Greeny's replicas (to me they always look off) but yours is stellar!

@LesPauli: I'm having a makeover done on a R9. Florian has just finished gluing back the neck, with the Brazilian fretboard and pressing in the longer bushings for the stop tailpiece ;)
I believe it will be starting grain filling and finishing in the next few days.
The process itself is...
I don't know how I missed this thread, but after discovering it, I've been spending the last hour reading compulsively.
The guitar is turning out amazing and I'm eager to se how the aging process develops :)
I will be following closely, since my guitar is at Florian's workshop too and going...
It's true what they say. Every dark cloud has a silver lining!
Congrats for the guitar and the changes! It was looking amazing even before, but now you have transformed it into something else.
I have to admit I went pretty much the same route with my les paul as well, sourcing vintage pickups...
