Ooooooh, now that IS nice.
[/quote]Thanks , modded myself, came with chrome hardware and black tortoise shell pick guard, one machine head was a bit bent so I decided to swap everything, all Sandberg parts apart from the tuners are now hipshot and the pick guard is from Jack's Instrument Services.

I recently refinished my old Shergold Marathon from cracked and flakey blond to pure black. It now looks the business with the black binding on the lovely neck, and also somehow sounds better. That my be subliminal, but it really does sound like an improvement. Also having the neck off and out of tension for a month or so has improved the set-up. I left the truss rod as it was; I know the standard wisdom says to release it, but I felt that the way the Shergold trussrod works, it may benefit from remaining untouched...and it did! Also, where the right hand wrist/forearm rests on the body, I gave it a little shaping to avoid my circulation from being cut off, as it was constantly when resting on the right angle of the body! It is now more of a pleasure to play. All in all, very satisfied. I am never going to sell this, so I have no qualms about making changes. To boot, it has a new Kiogon loom, the pups rewired in series, and it sounds fantastic. Added a couple of ebony knobs. Cross between a P and Ricky in sound I would say. Nice.

Finally had chance to take a few photos of my latest acquisition.

Ever since seeing photos of Cliff Burton with one back in the mid 80s, I’ve wanted one. 

Got some new Rotosounds today, first set I’ve bought in years. Man, do they feel rough 😂.

It’s in very good shape. Yes, is has some chips and plectrum marks, but it’s 34 years old!

I’m so bloody happy, I grin every time I see it!

 

I need get some tiny gold screws for the trussrod cover as they were pretty chewed up.
