    Hey folks, this is my new restyle guitar day, yesterday i finished my project, i´ve turned a low budget guitar in to my election guitar.
    A mont ago it was like this:

    After some work and dedication turned in to this:

    Mods:
    Nut
    Bridge-Wilkinson brass compensated saddles
    Pickups:
    Bridge- alnico 52
    Neck- P90
    Pots, switch, all Fender
    Black Knobs
    Neck- 10 lays of Tru-oil

    The sound of this guitar is amazing, clean bright soun on bridge position, and a dirty vintage on midle and neck position.
    Hope you like it as much as i.

    Aply the Tru-oil is very simple its aplied with a piece of a t-shirt moistured whit the oil, there are a lot of videos on you tube showing how to do it.

    I'm assuming you'd have to sand all the poly off the neck first?

    Alex, how many applications to get your results? I've always like the Tru-oil finishes I've seen. This is the first time I've seen it a finished body.

    Elmico, yes i sand it all the finish to aply the tru-oil, the neck of this affinity originaly almost dont have finish.

    Xtrajerry, i didnt apply the tru-oil on the body, was only at the neck.

    Nice mod. I dig P-90 neck in a tele too. I think it would look better with black cover.

    I like the cream on yours. Cream didn't work on my copperburst so I switched it to black. Here's what it looks like.

    Looks much better with the black P90 cover.
    You've done a great job there. Fantastic!
