    What are you doing with your time?

    I’m getting to projects I have not had the time to do. This was one. The CXS is in almost pristine condition. Sadly, I think it was given as a present, played a couple of times and spent the next 20 years in the closet. Sad… I Love the Blue on Black. Kind of a KWS vibe. Anyway, what I wanted to share on this guitar are the Gotoh, Cosmo Black, Magnum Lock-Trad Tuners. 16:1 and drop ins. They are staggered with solid String Poles. No wobbles and you stay in tune. In my humble opinion, a good tuner solves a lot of potential problems. These come in Chrome, Black and Cosmo Black. I like the Cosmo Black on a Black Guitar with Chrome Hardware. Blends the Chrome and Black nicely. Having fun in lockdown. M

    Looks good. I am building RC cars and just ordered a RC flight simulator last night. I keep pretty busy in my shop.

    Nice tuners on a nice guitar! I do like that blue pickguard on the black body. Not something I would have tried myself, but it worked out nice.

    As far as projects for me, I have lots. But fortunately, I’m still working. So not as much time as others have right now.

    Man I saw that guitar on EBay and was really tempted, but I have my own projects to finish. Really cool combination for both colors and pickups. That guitar is giving me some bad GAS! Nice work. Enjoying lockdown as well, even though I am still working from home during the days. Finally getting to projects at night that were sitting.

    Nice! I've got a bridge for the blue one and some hb's to install in the black, but I don't have any plans to attack it any time soon. They both just got new strings and I hate wasting new strings so I'll wait until next time I change em to mod everything.
