Sorry for the lack of updates all, it is -25 in calgary, my furnace crapped out and I caught the mother of all colds that is going around. Before we shut the water off and escaped to my parents house until the furnace is repaired, I grabbed this guitar and my j100 so they wouldnít freeze in the house.

Final note on the ordeal of the pickup, I understand used guitars come with issues, and his is a gamble that didnít play out in my favour. Reflecting on it, I still have a great guitar, and even though it annoys me that some clearly present issues werenít disclosed, I am enjoying the process of bringing this guitar back to what it should be.

Back to some notes, juan did the best he could with the pickup, but isnít 100% satisfied with the pickup, even with some 500k pots to help mellow it out. I brought the guitar home, hoping to try it out, then the furnace broke. I am thinking this weekend I willl get a chance to try it out and see if I like the sound, or if I need to send it to throbak for a rewind.

In better news, the pickguard is straight! Unfortunately I donít have the bracket for it, the allparts one I found at l&m was not a match so I will be tracking a vintage one down online.

Realistically, the refret will be a March update, along with a new nut. From that point I need to decide what to do with the varitone, as I have all the parts but one of the large caps is cracked in half and canít be salvaged.

Finally, Iím looking to sell the vintage waffle back tuners, they are missing one bushing and the screws. Prices are all over the place for these, anyone know fair market value to ask for them?
