Leveled, crowned and polished. Bad light so the pics aren't so great with the flash, I'll make better pics when it's sunny.

I had to raise the nut with a 0.5mm shim, that's how much higher the new frets are. They were 0.7-0.8mm before, now 1.3mm.

Thanks. It plays like butter and sustains for days, so it's a keeper :)

The only thing missing is the black switch tip, the rest is all original now (well except for the neck).

Here's more:
