Modifications

TV Jones Classic pickups, Bigsby B6C, Compton Titanium bridge, new CTS pots, wiring and Switchcraft input jack. New nut.

I bought this guitar off Ebay, and when it arrived it was in rough condition. The pots were noisy and scratchy, the nut was cracked, and the frets were in bad condition. It has now had a fret-level and dress, a new nut, new pots,wiring, and input jack. Now it plays beautifully and the TV Classics and the Compton Titanium bridge dramatically improved the sound quality. The Bigsby was just for fun!
