    It’s finally done!!! There’s plenty more I want to do with it still, but I couldn’t be any happier right now!

    Nice looker. Enjoy that with a vengeance!
    Could you tell me how you're getting on with the Chet arm?
    I bought one for my Phoenix and cannot find a position it sits right.
    It's either too low at the end or the bend rides up high.
    It isn't flat, as in if i lay it on a table it doesn't lay flat. Is that right?
    Cheers.

    Not sure I know what you mean? We cleaned it up a little. Other than that, swapped parts and cleaned the input connection.

    To be honest, I can see that. I am still getting used to it. I might adjust it a little, because it is a little too close to the strings, but I do like it more than the original handle. It has more range of motion.

    Yeah, it does have a subtlety the others don’t.
    I took off a Harley clutch lever I’d been using but now have a Duane Eddy on it, but the tension seems more due to the shorter handle.
    I think i’ll give it another chance!
    Cheers
