    The Money pit started as a fully loaded 58 AVRI body I purchased off ebay back in 2013. I had a corian string block made for it to inlay where the string ferrules are, that has been replaced by a brass piece (which is smaller, there are gaps).

    The stock knobs have been replaced with aged Callaham heavy knurled ones. It now has Fender OV pickups. And, the pots/switch are the originals...

    The current neck is a 52 RI that I bought from #Pierce in the classifieds a while back.

    I just got some Kluson vintage style tuners for it.

    Going to take it in for some tlc, more pics soon...
