Pretty good looking bastard. Bought this off a friendly hippie in Illinois.
Modeled after the old Kay and Airline models, this is really a beautiful work of art. The design of it is just perfect, but in a flashy sort of way. I want to do weird things with it, like make it little hats and cook it dinner.
The strings were probably 10 years old, and rusted through. There was also an extreme gap in action all the way down the neck. Cut the old strings off and popped the neck off for a quick shim at the neck heel. That set the angle of the neck almost perfectly parallel to the strings.
The neck had this bizarre 2-screw system that actually works very efficiently.
Even with the beautiful finish, there was a lot of sweat and dirt to get rid of.
Next step was cleaning up the chrome on the pickups and tailpiece. An amazing little trick is to rub it with aluminum foil. Just check out the job it did for this pickup-
The sound has a typical humbucker range on the normal settings, but when you fire up the piezeo pickup, it really shimmers with the res-o-glass construction. lots of fun to play.
