Woa!

Deffinitely worthy that tort guard (and the work effort of filing it)!
Someone knows where I can find the nearest woodchipper to throw my pieces of junk into?

I just wanted to add the final photo, with mute & cover:

The body is from '64, everything else is '65

By the end, it cost me less than an AVRI Thin Skin  :)

Thanks guys!  And thanks to Andrew for the body  ;) 

To be more specific, the tuners are aged Kluson repros and the pckups are still Avri (but not the covers).  I'll get Novaks soon...

and the straplocks are '06  :P 8)

I was really hoping for a full shot on the flokati...  :?  I can't have a flokati becuase my GF has allergic reactions around wool and cashmere and stuff.  :(

Oh no, that's too bad!  We've got two, a white one & a black one.  There's a place in NY that's really reasonable.  They were last year's birthday present to my g/f. 

I'm going to take a bunch of pics of it this weekend to start a write up for the library, for David.  I'll get some nice flokati shots for you!  :)
