Beautiful job!

The fact it's still shows it's age gently is a bonus.

Looks great. Excellent work and love the old and new - very nicely balanced. I'm currently restoring a 79 Springy. Have posted some pic links.

Superb work! And just for fun, a nice story.
Back in the early sixties I got up and jammed with Rory Storm and the Hurricanes at a gig, just after Ringo left them to join the Beatles.
I borrowed their guitar player`s strat.
Yours is an absolute dead ringer for his apart from the F word on the headstock.
Lovely guitar.

Fantastic work, restoration threads like this always prolonges my life a week or so longer. A very tasteful final result IMHO.

A question: You mentioned that the new pickguard was a Fender one. Did that fit or did you have to make new drilling holes? Asking since I'd like to change my white pickguard to perhaps a mint green one, but I don't want to drill new holes on my Goldie just for that.

Ah, OK. I guess I just have to keep looking for something that will fit.
