Well time again for a new project, I have a old American Pyramid neck lying around that had it HS Broke at one time. I've re-glued it & just picked up a professionally modded focus body on its way from Tim (Amerturk) that has 2 single coils n a switch added along with candy apple green finish. It was originally a White 85 Focus 1000.

Could make a decant six banger with a little more tonal options compared to my 86/87 Retta II & my 84 Striker 200ST. Just need to decide on what color hardware (im thinking gold), The pups & if i use a OFR or A NFT OFR. What u guys think?

Heres the bones:

I'm not a fan of such colors or gold HW, but regarding the technical side, it should work out fine :thumbs

Not to completely contradict Sergej......well yes to completely contradict Sergej, I vote gold. If it was an automobile I wouldn't suggest it, but that guitar is screaming, "I wanna be pimped!"

With that body color I´d go with gold all the way through :thumbs .

Disclaimer: I´m not really into gold HW - but this color would be right for it :whistle .
