Sweet Esquire Joe. I did think about spraying mine LPB, but it seems a small change from the colour it is now (I could imagine my wife asking why I bothered changing it from blue to blue...). I reamed out the headstock to 10mm and fitted some new tuner bushes (with the correct vintage size bore). I pre-aged them before fitting so they don't look odd against the rest of the tuners. The tuners are much smoother operating now and no issues with the guitar holding tune even after a 3 hour rehearsal last night. I bought some radius gauges and other tools as a kit (feeler gauges and a string action gauge) so I used these to fine tune the saddle height across the strings and on my other Teles too. This 9.5" radius neck seems to allow me to run 0.5mm lower action than the 7.25" radius necks on my Classic 50s Teles. I play this guitar so much that I'm not rushing to respray it, but I know that soon the weather will cool and I might miss my opportunity. I'm going to have to bite the bullet and do the respray soon...but let me play it one more week first.
