Similiar non solder chip board as in my 08 Standard




So far I've removed the scratchplate (Gonna tidy the holes)


Dunlop Strap Loks

Gold Pointers

Gold hats with silver inserts


I have the peter green reverse magnet job due on Thursday

Ok its back and all done I've also restrung it with my favoured D'addario Strings [biggrin]







(Sorry another LONG day so this is a night shot again...)


Testing the "Peter Green" mod it works perfectly and adds a nice extra level of control to the output.


Oh The pickups where wound on the 30th June 2011 (2 weeks before the neck stamp date)

Enjoy. I just bought one myself. I changed my pickgaurd to a 5 ply Gibson, and thought it looked much nicer. Matched the bell better.

The Maple top is so much nicer than the mahogany top IMO.

I am a fan of the satin/faded finish. The wood tends to resonate better when not bound by multi-layers of lacquer.

I have to agree, The "Peter Green" mod is also another reason I purchased a Worn as they seem to work better with the reverse polarity feedback for extra sustain.

I may refinish it in a lighter wood finish someday but for now its just singing...


Update heres (FINALLY) a day photograph
