    Classic Makeover

    Gave my red Classic a facelift. Figure I'd better lavish some love on her after all the nasty shit she's gone through in the last six months...new black Gen-u wine Anderson pickguard!



    Before...




    I also ordered at the same time an SSS pickguard from the same single ply flat black material - really nice stuff! I loaded it up w/ two Fralin Blues and an SC2 at the bridge, 5 way and will try it at some point. I'm sure I'll go back to the HF's and splitting. It sounds incredible.

    Yes, I'm not comfortable ion the two strap pin set-up. I help off for a long time but once the guitar began showing signs of "Relicing" due to hard use - and one head-first dive off a stage riser onto the floor with less than stellar results - I figured she was mine to keep and stopped worrying about mods. It even has my initials carved into the back.

    Ouch! That must have landed at the worst possible angle.
