    I was lucky enough over the past week to have Dave Petillo work on one of my guitars. He did some mods on it that brought this thing to the next level.


    Install pickups secured wires to terminals/grounded

    Install strap buttons with nylon washers underneath

    Balance pickup height

    Set up with supplied 10's

    Polished frets tops to 10,000 grit sandpaper micropolished

    Lower action

    Tight string wraps on tuning key post

    Thanks for not detailing the mods: I am psychic, and so know already

    What a beauty, I love how you can see the grain of the body through the finish! And it's double bound!
