That looks class,congrats sir!
That's a great transformation, looks spectacular!
Thanks all, it sounds and plays really well too, its got a wider finger board than normal and isnt heavy at all, these pickups are filters on steroids too. Its a Rocker.
Best Pro Jet I ever saw
Great guitar...wish my pro jet had that colour
Looks great, very much like a pro line Gretsch.
Now, have you considered how much it cost you to mod it versus what it would have cost to just buy a used pro line?
Maybe I missed something along the way, but mods did you do exactly?
What color is it now?
Well it wasn't cheap but it was fun. Ill try to remember.
Paint and misc. 50.00
Rings, pots, switch etc. 50.00.
Hey, as long as you're happy with it, that's all that matters in the long run.
Lovely lovely, and quite unique enough to justify the cost of the whole rigmarole as far as I'm concerned.
And nice work scoring a Caddy tail like that on the cheap, I myself would love to eventually buff one down to the nickel for later use on a jet as well!
OK, so the whole project cost you about a grand? Like I said, as long as you're happy with it.
You asked about the Japanese army box. I think I'm eventually going to turn it into a very cool cigar box guitar at some point soon, and dress it up with gears and other doodads that CB Gitty sells, giving it a Steam Punk vibe. I may attempt to do the work myself. The jury is still out on that.
Great job, love the colour and tailpiece!
Finishing touch, banjo armrest installed!
