    Nice work. I just went through similar rounds with my G5220, except I retained the stock pickups. CTS pots including a no-load tone. I put a parallel treble bleed on all three volumes and the result is really pretty cool - in the middle position I can roll of the neck volume slightly and get outrageous sparkle and clarity. It almost sounds like an mic'd acoustic. There is a lot of potential in these guitars if you're willing to put in the time and effort.

    Great job on the mods. The Rat Rod looks a lot better to me after the changes. Enjoy!

    A couple of new (old) decals, from an original Moon Equipment decal sheet from the 70s. There was a big set of Mooneyes but the decal ripped when being moved.

    A cheap way to a custom TRC.
