wow... lots of work -- new nut new saddle new frets _ big ones Level and crown reshaped the back of the necks profile to a huge soft V -- taking out the mismatch and humps mine had . way better now! but a huge job.. that poly was like grinding thru a fiberglass boat hull ... next resprayed it black .. on ebay I won 2 pickups 1950's Stratotone H44 -- for about 150.00 each here a tip use a original H44 pickup thats no hotter then 3.5 in the neck - otherwise its toooooo dark - put the hotter one in the bridge 4ks are killer but hard to find. next will be making a whole new pickgaurd - these pups are not the same size - so a whole new pickgaurd is needed.. NONE of this is cost effective! if I would have had to pay full price on all this stuff, it would be like this, the guitar is 5 bills the pups were 3 bills the frets were 2 bills the nut and saddle job was 60.00 the reshaping and spray was 120.00 $1,180.00 and I just watched real H44's going for $800.00 yesterday and twice last month.. but I'm in it about 650.00 horse trades and all.
