As someone who is only just getting into the most basic of mods on my guitars, this thread is awe-inspiring. Can't wait to see it finished!

Thank you everyone!
Thanks for the tips about the pickups but it wasn't the right ones, I have decided to do my own pickups.

recently i have made the volume thumb wheels in epoxy, I'm gonna spray them silver i think.
i have also screen printed the true rod cover, I'm gonna cut i to right size tomorrow.

Impossible to find similar pickups as the original ones, so i made these. long long way to go, and i need to make a new cast cause these wax covers isnt that good, but i think it can be pretty Nice:)

I love everything about this guitar! I don't know much about it, but I've seen some pretty alright 3D printed pickup covers.
