Pretty much done with it now. Someone had refretted it sometime in the past, so I leveled and dressed the frets. Installed a .25 degree Stewmac neck shim and did a full setup on it. It plays like silk now. I ordered an assortment of tuner screws that reportedly came from a 1966 Musicmaster so I can replace one missing tuner screw. And that will be the final finishing touch.

One more final touch: I bought two new three way switches and wired it according to a Premier Guitar wiring mod article. I like it way more than the original wiring.

I also have a Mastery Bridge laying around that was for a future project, but I am going to use it on the Mustang, at least for a time.
