So finally it's finished :thumbs

This has been a bit of a journey from a beaten up body with a homemade trem route, a broken repaired headstock on a dirty tranny neck but it played as sweet as :headbang
Here's a few reminder pics of how it used to be :brow

And now the transformation into a sweet black maple tranny necked thing of beauty :headbang

I've kept everything original to the guitar apart from the neck which I just had to change shrug
I think you'll agree this baby has been well & truly rescued :thumbs
Hopefully the man himself would approve :headbang :headbang

As good as this looks unfortunately there is a very faint line around the filled part of the body where the homemade trem route used to be, obviously the repair has settled slightly over time since the paint was applied, not that noticeable tho' but there none the less shrug

In that case, I really don't think you have any other alternative then to give it to me.

:thumbs Nice job. She's still beautiful.
