    Not mine exactly, it was until my son saw it and then strangely it was mine no more, at least he still plays it. Put a couple of Mexican standard pickups in it which gave it a much fuller sound, quite a chunky neck, played great.

    Just the light, and maybe the plastic wrap that comes on them from factory. Sometimes that stuff has a bluish tint that will interact with the actual color of the pickguard...

    I love mine (the neck is to die for; most comfortable of all my guitars), but it's do for a pickup upgrade. The Fideli'trons are okay, and some days they sound downright beautiful, but they're too in-between for me; more focused than actual Filter'Trons, but focused enough to sound like a Tele. I think I'm going to try some TV Jones T-90s in it. Might scratch the itch I've been having lately to buy a P-90 guitar...

    what about fullerton's? ide definitely put tv jones in it. would you have to rout for the p90's? i wouldn't, that thing needs gold filtertrons in my opinion or i wouldn't even touch it! but hey it's your beautiful guitar...

    TV Jones offers their T90 with a Filter'tron mount, so I wouldn't have to make any modifications to the guitar.

    Never heard of Fullertrons, and I've got a Gretsch with nice Filtertrons already. The T90s would add some variety to my arsenal :)
