Modifications

The mods done have been in four waves. The first wave was removing the Caddy tailpiece and adding a gold V-Cut Bigsby, removing the rattle-o-matic roller bridge and replacing with a bar bridge.

The second wave consisted of the neck hole being routed, and a dogear Kent Armstrong P90 fitted in, and installing a custom Setzer pickguard.

The hole in the guard was about 1/8" off, so the third wave was adding a TV Classic to the bridge position and filling in the existing hole on the guitar and refitting the guard so it's flush against the fingerboard extension.

The last mod was removing the Kent Armstrong pickup as it was a little too loud and replacing it with a Lindy Fralin 15% underwound P90.
