The Deluxe saga continues. As I've bought the guitar with much help from the forum, I owe you this topic. It may not be very advanced restoration work, but still... The guitar started like this: TD0 by Piotr posted Apr 23, 2020 at 4:13 PM Not too shabby by any means, but: - the nut needed changing, - the frets needed work, - the neck pocket was an abomination, - only one WRHB pickup was original, with non-original cover though, - the pickguard and electronics were non-original, with 500k pots. As of today, I've already had my guitar tech correct the neck pocket to reduce the gap and ensure better stability. I'll replace the electronics myself and it will go back to the tech for a new bone nut and fretwork. What do I have at my disposal? 1. Original neck and body with hardware. 1guitar by Piotr posted Nov 24, 2020 at 6:50 PM 2. An original pickup with a replaced cover, measuring 9.90k (neck position), and a vintage WRHB I bought on Reverb, measuring 10.55k (bridge position). The one I bought is not in the best shape ever, but I hope it will work with no issues. 1pickups by Piotr posted Nov 24, 2020 at 6:50 PM 3. An original pickguard from a '77 Deluxe. A bit tatty, but working. I bought it with an original switch and output jack, which were a nice bonus. 1pickguard by Piotr posted Nov 24, 2020 at 6:50 PM 4. Original electronics, which I found in the case with the guitar - alas, untested. 1electronics by Piotr posted Nov 24, 2020 at 6:50 PM Stay tuned for soldering updates And please, do keep your fingers crossed that the electronics and the vintage pickup work as they should.
