Now, for those of you remember the 200$ UV parts for sale thread on ss.org about a year ago, well, i got them, a heap of rusted parts, cracked body, missing scratchplate, one single white humbucker, in fact, pictures say more than a thousand words:
Now, a bit of a horror show, but, I gave it all a rust bath, have put new saddles on the trem (black ones, seems like there's a total lack of cosmo chrome ones about) and then got rid of the body, as didn't want another basswood guitar, and then got the following bits and pieces:
A new body, courtesy of sims custom shop, all pimped out in swamp ash:
Some fancy pimped up shit:
Some electronics (whether they go in, no idea yet, depends if it works, or not...)
More pimped out shit:
but that, well, for now, is the end. All these things are now at an undisclosed secret location, with neck, bridge and a few red and a few red/black and one black coloured pickups, along with a spec, some ideas and a determination to finally get it finished (well, there's some stuff to be done after all this as well, but to get all the stuff done that i can't do) having made the journey...
Now, I wait with baited breath for a call, one that will reveal what has happened, and when i can pick it up ready for the final assembly!
P.S: This is going to be a love it or hate it guitar. It shall hence be dubbed "project marmite"
Awesome! I can't wait to see it all done!
I needs me a swamp ash body too.
