My pleasure, Raphael..glad they made it, mate !

A couple of well-travelled pieces of plastic, those :)..from a '60s Italian EKO 500/V guitar that made its way to Australia ( via who knows where ?) to being sent over to France to go back on another '60s EKO 500/V !!

Hope the restoration goes well..any luck sourcing other hardware yet ? Please post any updates as you go along, will be fun to follow..very cool guitars, these :) !

Best,
Jeff.

Wow, if you could post a shot of the switch section when you work on that, it would be great.

:fro:
definitely following this one! such awesome guitars. Cant wait to see how this turns out!
Curious about the resistors under the pickups?

i had a similar experience recently with some vintage synths, i went to meet this cute girl and her Mother who were selling a vintage Roland Cube amp and they had some other stuff lying around like an old Jands (aussie) mixer. They used to belong to the Dad (who sadly passed away), and they said they had some more stuff of his in the garage they had to go through. Went through and had a look and he had 2 Ensoniq ESQ-1's (one in its original box), an Ensoniq VFX-SD with manual in its OHSC, a Roland RS202 mint! and heaps of cool rack gear too... i was like a kid in a candy store going through all the cool gear he used. Now i'm helping them test and repair most of them to sell.
