I had debated the best way to up grade. Fix up what I had or buy a new one. Decided on the fix up. Couldn't be happier! For months I went to a music store ,played with all kinds of guitars. Oh yeah, there's some nice ones out there. ALL of them were out of my price range. Still though ,when I came home nothing beat the way I felt with my guitar in my hands. It's got some wear thet's for sure ,scratches and dings. For some reason that makes it more comfortable to hold than when I held a brand new one. What started as just putting in a new selector switch turned into open heart surgury. New pick guard ,switch and pick ups. $150.00 all together. I bought the guitar a year ago for the same . For me now, it's pricless. I know this guitar inside and out. I have a whole new attitude towards it now .And my playing and ability and desire. No new guitar could have done that for me. Almost like meeting the girl of my dreams. Just have to show her off!

Nice job man. Nothing more satisfying than working on your own guitar and having it turn out the way you want! biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone! I got it all back together last night and this morning was when I restrung it. I've bareley put it down since. It has more than exceeded my expectations. The sounds, look, feel, I've got my guitar. It's been a great day! My hands and fingers are sore. Going to go wrap them around an ice cold beer. (or two!) Thanks again everyone. Your suppot means alot.

It's really good looking, I sure like the look of it. Looks like a vintage original - cos of the yellowish pus and knobs - where someone put a new pickguard in somewhere around -79. wink.gif It came out cool! biggrin.gif

Yeah, but nice to know she can make a blind man see!
I had just cut the strings off when I thought I'd take before and after pics.

Wish I did have recordings to compare them. Next is being able to record and download here. Also (eventually) I want to get in on some collaborations. I'm moving slow but I'm moving forward!
