First task on the list was to replace the incorrect fitted pickup covers. Once the old ones had been removed, it was discovered that the pickups were a Grover Jackson in the neck and a Seymour Duncan in the bridge.
Both pickups had unusual string spacing and sizing, so generic covers would not fit. With the correct size covers order, the new covers were fitted.
The pickups were fitted and the next step was the complete rewire of the circuit, as the previous own had tried to wire up a custom circuit
The fret recrown was needed to give a new lease of life to the 30+ year old frets.
As with all our fretwork, the board was masked off before any work began. The tops of the frets are marked to ensure that the level of the frets are not affected while the crown profile is filed back into each fret, removing or reducing the flat tops of the frets that cause fret buzzing/zinging.
Once the fret recrown and polish had been done, the guitar was treated to a full setup to get the most out of the other repair work.
