Problems with the neck and noisey pickups led me to pull the old workhorse apart. I thought people might be interested to see:

3 piece sen body? I had a Warmoth neck lying around, tried it for fit and it's way off. Thinking about trying one of the Japanese Allparts necks. Haven't decided what colout to respray it.

Hi Nils, what is wrong with the neck? Does it need a refret? That colour is quite rare as I've only seen one other fiesta red one. Normally FO flamingo orange or metallic red. Will need to check what CR stands for in the catalogs Crimson Red?

London.

It needs a refret and has a bit too much give in it. It may not be the neck that is the problem though, there is a shim in the pocket which might account for its lack of sustain. We'll see. The paint finish is weird, it's not nitro but not poly either.
Pulled a bit more off, Nitro I think they just went a bit heavy on the undercoat which has made it sort of crispy?

Thanks, thin poly makes sense. I couldn't understand why it was coming away so oddly. It's light for alder.

She'll make noise again once her faults have been sorted.
