    After seeing GFS's new Gold Foil pickups, I'm going to go with three P90 sized pickups and a 6 position rotary switch.

    Here's my quite rare mid 60's kent copa 632 (made by guyatone). You will find a lot of 500 series copas but I haven't seen another one of these. Sounds killer , solid mahogany body and in great condition. The only thing that keeps me from gigging with it is the complication of 3 switches, 3 volume knobs and 3 tone knobs.

    A new fellow on here that goes by Weldaar just sent me a dismantled Stadco Sound Master. Should be a great project when it arrives. Hopefully it'll come together looking like this: ImageUploadedByTDPRI1425699056.403600.jpg

    I bought one of these for my first electric guitar, before I knew how crappy the bridge was, how microphonic the PU was, etc. :oops:

    And then I sold it for pocket change before I realized how cool it was. :oops: :oops:

    Yah, boy! Look at that tailpiece and the beautiful, intricate hand-engraving on the pick guard. How could you let it go?

    My second guitar was a Teisco from walmart. Bought it with money from my first job as a car hop at the local A&W. Had it for 30 years. It went away when I finally got married in my mid 40's and thinned out the flock.

    I currently have an old MIJ no name Jazz Bass copy. No pics. It looks like a Jazz Bass copy.

    bparnell57 - could you trace that pickguard? My Zenon looks very similar to that and I like the looks of that guard. :)

    I should be getting the package today, so if I get it when I get home I'll go ahead and send you either a high contrast straight on pic with dimensions or make a tracing with dimensions. I could even mail you a paper tracing if you need one. PM me later.

    I've had my fair share. This is to just show a few:
    1. El Degas Les Paul Recording - one of the truest copies I've ever seen of the original. Cool guitar!
    2. Mann Howard Roberts Copy - just stunningly beautiful guitar. I miss her sometimes, late at night
    3. Aria Diamond - this guitar looks cool, and the pickups sound like all your favorite electric blues artists!
    4. Electra Phoenix Bass - yep. Just crazy.

    Here you go guys, a nice straight on pic like I promised. View attachment 275980

    And after a good half hour, here's my progress on the project. I took out the lifting frets, put it back together, and put in Strat tuner bushings. All I have to do is put in tuners with their new to be drilled mounting holes, strings, and play it like mad as a sweet 3 pickup slide guitar or low action lap steel.
