    Vinyl or even plastidip on the headstock would make it killer.

    Plastidip is 100% removable and simple to do, too.

    Its a game changer. No wobble at all. I put it on both of my guitars.

    Gotoh makes them, too:

    Yeah the Gotoh are cheaper, but the Scallers have the same footprint as the stock tuners.

    That looks awesome! It's expensive for something that works totally fine as-is, but I think that would look great with an aged copper bridge, rather than ust some brisge hardware.

    I love the push0in arms - they're more like the Gotoh design with an allen key for tension, than the Ibby one. I did wear one out over maybe -5 years of use, but that was an early one and may have been faulty. I just replaced it so in a few years I'll haver a better idea, but at $19.50 or so an arm, if I have to replace the arm holder ever several years, I'm ok with that.

    Yeah a totally aged bridge would be awesome, but half the price of the guitar so it really wasn't an option for this project. I have about $50 worth of parts in this and I think it made a big enough difference. If it was a $3000 Suhr sure, but I think that really goes too far here.
