Why the quoting to include the photos?

Do I need to update the FAQ page?

Looking at those photos they just look nothing like the guitar for some reason, so I tried again after I lightly aged the finish (yep I did not want a brand new 84 Standard) and I think this really shows what the guitar looks like.

And I took a quick shot the the parts test fitted.

Man, this thread has got me into a desperate need of refinishing the top of my white Vector -- still on Nick's hands.

Hats off!

That Standard looks so nice. BTW, I get my Mighty Hamer on Tuesday if all has went as planned. Thanks for the gear and I cant wait to hear it.

Are you going to send the transformation pics to the seller? I would.

I think a letter bomb would be more apropos.

Well the plans I had today fell through, so I went to the shop to work on the Standard and after all this work it's done!

Here she is all finished and set up.

It's a great sounding guitar and I can't believe it's weight because it's only 8lbs. Now if anyone has an extra toggle switch back plate they can spare let me know because this guitar has a junker home makde one on it. Well it's been fun, so I hole you enjoyed it as well.
