Yep, that's the conversion :yesway: I was paying most attention to Post 13 in that thread since it looks the most scientific (but since I'm crap at Maths, it could actually be nonsense :cheers2: )
Damn, that's gorgeous! It may be a long shot, but hope you're able to find this beauty again.
Do you remember whether it was a fairly local (or at least national) sale? Have you got a record of the s/n? As I say, it's obviously a long shot but might be a good starting point. Good luck!
You could try something like Bobbin Toppers (Jockomo also makes them). They're like Band Aid material that you just peel & stick onto the bobbins. They're not bad from a distance, but you can tell what they are when you're close enough to play the guitar. If nothing else it's a cheap way of...
That's just stunning!

EDIT: In fact, there were some serious-looking calculations on this very site back in 2013. Whether they're real or not I have no idea, but they came out as only...
1. Congrats on an absolute beauty! That looks amazing with the covered pups - are they just covers or new pickups?
2. My '22 is about 9.8lb. I think most of them are in that ballpark
3. There's nothing like that in my truss rod cavity. I'm thinking yours has some sort of witchcraft marking :p
Wait... is that a Compton bridge as a tailpiece? :oops: I want to ask 'why' but that ignores the 'whys' about every other part of this.
This guitar is the reason why releasing patients into the community isn't always a good thing.
