1960's body with a 2010 AVRI neck. Refinned in "taos turquoise". Novak pickups. Jazzmaster in the bridge, P90 in the neck.

Plays so well! I'm excited for this. Thinking about putting a mint guard on it.

Gorgeous. Really digging the genuine finish wear on the body. Post pics plz if you put a mint guard on. Smile

Agreed on Novak pickups. They're very good indeed. I have a JM-V in the neck and a JM-FAT in the bridge, and that combo works well. It's cool that he does P-90s for the JM form factor, and I'm not surprised that works well too.

Yeah, they sound really great. A little bit noisy, I'm thinking it might be a grounding or guarding issue though. Also thinking about trying some SD antiquities (although I like the tone right now) and a mastery bridge.

That colour combo wins big time. Nice!

Changed the guard. Now mint! I'm loving the look of it. Still on the fence about changing the pickup covers and knobs to aged white.

Personally I liked the old color combo but that looks nice too

I liked the tort better too but maybe it'd look better with aged pickup covers and knobs.
