    I replaced the bridge to GOTOH modern, the PUP to Bardens, the nut to bone and the pick guard to vintage 5 hole.

    That is too cool!:cool: Do they still offer those? I remember seeing a maroon and a blue one a few years back at a local dealer.

    Looks cool. The black guard and black pickups take it over the top.

    I've got a Warmoth T body that turned out, very much like this.

    All I have to do is convince myself, I meant for it to work out this way. 12 years, and I still can't accept it. Which is a shame.

    Maybe I'll just revisit this thread a couple times every day. To teach my eyes to see things another way.

    I recall that these were hated on here initially upon release. But, I really liked them to be honest. You've done a really nice job. Many happy plays to you.

    Man I dig that! Slap 3 brass saddles on it, and I'd be on my way! Enjoy!
