Very nice. Reminds me of my Junior Gent. Congrats on the new guitar.

37

Very nice. It's unique and familiar looking at the same time. Enjoy.

Little by little i'm getting closer.....i found an original Gretsch switch-tip in nickel and swapped - here's what it looks like...

39

Almost Done !

After my "G"-knobs made it from Arkansas via Miami and Zuerich(Switzerland) to Frankfurt (Germany) within 5 (!) days, it took german customs and german parcel-service another 7 days to move my parcel to cologne

Immediately ripped off the plastic-knobs, put some fabric-flex over the shaft to compensate the difference in diameter, between split shaft pot and knob (made for solid shaft). Then quickly put some of the fabric-flex into the shaft - just to avoid bending - and put on the "G"-knobs.

Im not even shure wether the guitar looks "better" now - but now it looks definitely as it's supposed to look! Just right

Here are some first impressions:

Love the looks of nickel.....but it's hard to capture on photo.....

41

just like the perspective......

42

Looking good! Sometimes the little personal touches make it just that much more fun to play. You have truly made it your own!

I agree. Especially given the color, it looks great. You made it yours.

45

Light was good and most of the storm-damage removed from terrace and garden.....

Time to take some proper pics

46

Nickel suits the glossy wood looks very good.....

47

....plus the knobs feel way better - tools for men

48

...and now the new toggle switch tip makes sense!

Hi jmkoeln, good job. The guitar now looks even more classy. By the way, what is fabric-flex?
