This was a great day for me! I've long wanted an ebony and gold Studio and this one checks all my boxes.

It's a 2010. Chambered, weighs 7.3 lbs and has a 50's neck. It's in fan-freakin-tastic condition. Really don't think it was ever played much.

I swapped out the circuit board and pickups. Put in some Emerson bumbly-bees, CTS 500K pots and a set of Whole Lotta Humbuckers. She sings so sweetly! I also threw on some black and gold witch hats and a 5 ply pickguard off a Custom.

Got it for $900 CAD with a minty black Gibbo hardcase. OG paperwork included.

Here's the link;

4 Black Tone + Volume Witch Hat Knobs Gold reflector for US pots https://reverb.com/item/46850881-4-...are&utm_campaign=listing&utm_content=46850881

I believe you can buy directly from their site if you don't use Reverb.

They're great quality. They first sent me 4 tone knobs by mistake, but once I let them know they sent me two volume knobs at no additional cost. Shipping was quick too. :yesway:

Beautiful! I just looked at a black 1990 Studio, when we went to pick up my bassist's new amp. It had the gold covers, but I love the way the double blacks look. If I pick it up, I may have to go that route.

I always take the covers off, none of my other Lesters have them on. When I picked this up I had planned on going into the city to buy gold covers as I really wanted that look, but I actually like the open look now on this and don't think I'll get covers for it.

Besides, gold covers are about $40 each now...

Thanks all!

I'm really digging the look. A little classy Custom, but stripped down. I'm excited to get the rest of the gold hardware I have on order.

Since I'm a huge fan of gitfiddles that might actually be gigged instead of just looked at yours has earned today's rock the stage award.

Love a good Studio. Congrats!

Gorgeous! I'm thinking a set of Grovers with ebony buttons would look killer on that one.
