I took the BST 1500 to my friend Keirn Hilleary at his shop in Fredrick MD called Lucky Pick Guitar repair and sales. He does an amazing job with everything I bring him.
We first got rid of the pesky zero fret and fit a custom vintage bone nut in its place, They made a new Truss rod cover out of rosewood to fill the gap. We then replaced the stock tuners with the Midsize Gotoh 510 tuners that have a very nice 18:1 Gear Ratio we then took the old rusty bridge and replaced it with a nice Schaller Non-Tremolo Roller Bridge that has some really nice adjustment features.
I put Dunlop Strap Locks and some vintage Teisco Volume Knobs on it as well.
My next step is to get some high quality Pots from RS GuitarWorks and replace the pickups with some DIMarzio 36th anniversary PAF’s
I have decided to name her Layla
