At least they did a better job drilling holes in the body than the neck!

Yeah I moved the bridge too far right... Its aesthetic. I need to plug the holes (again) and move it left about 2 mm. Then remove the left shim and make one for the right.

Its complicated hahaha.

It plays great so its all in the looks!

Thin nitro arctic white spray which is sinking nicely intothe grain of the swamp ash.

I have a Baja on the chopping-block. Troy has a mate who might be keen but I suppose it's all on-hold for the moment.

Have you got the original pups?
I'll call second dibs after Troy. Bandmate who was selling the Les Paul and Gretsch to buy a Tele has had a revelation. It's dawned on him that he actually can buy more guitars without selling any first. :rofl:
