Sorry John!
Unfortunately I do not see a possibility. You must be content with the pictures.

Except, you bring me the Burny GoldTop personally to me

Big Ed, let me start my post by saying that I think the work you have done on this guitar is incredible. If the flame veneer on my Burny ever started to lift off, you would be the first person I would get in contact with. That looks like a real keeper of a guitar.

However, tThe one thing I would like to point out is the alignment of the pickups. To me, the bridge pickup does not look to be parallel with the neck pickup, this picture is the best demonstration of what I mean....



Is it just a trick of the eye? Maybe I am wrong. I would like to know what you think though. Again, I am not having a go at your work, I just want to know if I am going crazy or not

Madness, how exactly the pictures are regarded! Correctly, with this photo series the bridge pickup was diagonally installed around 0.5 mm.
I disassemled and again assembled the Greco several times. For these photographs I had surveyed it simple. This fault is however for a long time repaired, as following picture proves. Now the distance on both sides is correct 60mm!
