No wonder it took some time. I hope you enjoy the result of your hard work.It's all finished. Refret, Stormy Monday pickups, CTS 550k pots, Vitamin Q caps, 50s wiring, Switchcraft long toggle and jack, new bridge and tuners, pickguard and TRC. I guess the only thing I haven't done was replace the TP, but I plan to eventually as it has a fair amount of corrosion.
I really like the guitar. It was the biggest PITA due to the rust and corrosion though. Most of the screw heads just crumpled into rust dust. There was green and black crud all in the bridge, in the tuners, all over the FB and even under the frets and in the binding. I couldn't even get the bridge off the base as it was so rusted to one post nothing I did could break it loose. I actually had to saw up the pickup rings to even get the mounting screws after the heads disintegrated.
Oh, and pics or it didn't happen
