Originally a sunburst with a failed (and wrong) rebinding and all reissue hardware. Rebound and refinished in Cadillac green with a mixture of old and new hardware. Now sporting vintage hilotron pickups, one rewound to original spec due to damage, both moved 1/4" closer to the bridge

Bought it as a giant project. It was just that. Did all the work myself and I'm glad I'm finally playing it as it's a lovely guitar.

Wonderful work… and a fantastic looking guitar! Serial number makes it a 1966 model year example. Kudos for bringing it back to it’s glory!

Hmmm 1966 , really? Well there you go. At least It’s still a bit older than me.
