    One of the features of La Cabronita Especial is the pearloid tuner buttons. Well, my plan was to give that one a twist:

    That's an ebony tuner knob! My first search for ebony tuner knobs was somewhat disheartening. I was seeing prices ranging from $25 to $60 a set. Yikes! I did eventually find these on eBay and got them for a winning bid of just $6.17 per set! However, these didn't fit on the super-cheap Chinese tuners I had bought for the Challenge.

    They did fit on Grover tuners though... and I was able to find a set of 18:1 Grovers for just $20 (eBay again!) These tuners arrived the day of the challenge deadline (not that that mattered!)

    Here's a before-and-after pic with the new buttons:

    (That takes care of the requisite "kid or animal shot"... guess I still need a sandwich shot!)

    I like alternate design MUCH more.

    I do, too! Much better "flow". Thanks for your comment! Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have tried something else!

    The alternate design 'flows' better, I think.
    Good to see you're carrying on!
