BEFORE:




AFTER:




this is a 60th anniversary 2011 USA Std. was stock, now has a pretty black pickguard and new pickups.

dimarzio twang kings, i got the pair for $100 brand new on ebay with free shipping, and i have wanted twang kings for a long time. damn. they sound nice. a bit more output, more sensitive to picking dynamics and with rolilng off the volume or tone. they got hella bite and are nice and bright. exactly what i expected and wanted. now i have the other with lace and this with the twang kinds. i am set. (may be picking up an AVRI in the next month or two).

thats what i thought but i couldn't tell in the lighting for sure. did you paint them or did you buy them? i think i am going to go with graphtech saddles again, so that will darken it up a bit, but at somepoint i think i will black it out with the burst.

The control panel on mine is black chrome. I bought it that way off ebay. And of course, I have a Hipshot Trilogy bridge which is also all black.

yea i saw that on there. i will have to look for a black chrome plate. with the graphtech saddles.

however i may be able to float an AVRI tele soon here, so i will pick that up first... i am really hooked on teles. [all gibsons] my LP's are in cases, i have one SG in a case a V in a case. i do have all three prestige out two in Estd, the other in C#std.

teles are getting the play.
