Well I kinda like the look without covers - guess I'll just have to have a look and see.

I've change the sound file in the previous post to reflect widdles on all pickups.

John, Guess I'll be able to see how it compares to your reissue

The OBL pick-ups most I've seen were black under the covers.

I've taken the pu covers off about a third of my OBG LPs, so it probably look something these.....

Thanks Innadaze. I'll give it a go at my next string change.

On another subject I've accidentally filed one of my nut slots too deep I've done this lots of time before without problems but there you go.

At the moment I've got a bit of paper under the string. As a temporary repair I've filled the slot with superglue and re-filed it. Anyone got other proven methods?

Dave, get an old bone nut and a file, make a small pile of bone dust and mix it with superglue.

Hey Innadaze, Are any of those the HBR OR HBL, Some of the zebras look like the regular Gibson PAFS with the circles in the bobbins.
