    This is a keeper:

    I bought one and the neck was too thick and thought "this can't be right" then I found this and thought "well even if it's the same profile neck this one is a looker!" and lo and behold the neck was perfect, 60's D profile. the seller did confirm the first was U shape.

    Anywho, I even checked the cavity and the wiring is the cleaniest I've seen... yup it's a keeper :]

    :cool:That's not stock. Those are CTS pots, a Switchcraft jack (probably switch too) and Orange Drop caps.
    The person that did that knew what they were doing.
    The only thing I would do seeing that in the cavity is perhaps shield the cavities with some conductive adhesive foil tape. That's it. Ya done good getting that one.

    Ahh, that's what threw me! Didn't click that it was a signature model from someone I'm unfamiliar with. Figured it was a somewhat upmarket Coronet, but just didn't make that connection. Still very nicely put together with better than normal production standards.

    I meant what I said, beyond adding some shielding (kinda my thing), I'd be stoked about owning that axe. Ya done good!
