I picked this up a few months ago but it needed some fret work and I hated the hardware color and the pickups so I have been slowly putting it back together.

This prototype has taped off binding that didnt make it to the production models but is otherwise identical.

It also happens to have one of the most insane quilt/flame tops I have ever seen.

I swapped the hardware from black to satin chrome.

The pickups are an AT-1 in the bridge and an Air Norton in the neck.

On to the pics:

Wow, that is beautiful! Excellent choice on the hardware colour.

The scraped binding makes it look way more classy. Is that also missing the treble cutaway bevel? That's one feature I find of questionable value, and really spoils the clean lines of the body.

No its still here the "binding" is just scrapped to match it and hides it pretty well.

Aha... now that i'm on a bigger screen i see it. Very subtle, and the binding does hide it nicely. Those routes are really nice and tight. Sweet guitar!
