    Hello everybody, did ya miss me?

    I took a break because i was very busy with school.

    So, last time i was here i just scored that epiphone dot p90, well i'm almost done fixing it up!

    Here's what i did:
    -50's wiring
    -new knobs
    -steamed out some dings in the neck
    -installed p90 covers(they are not the ones i will end up with though, i ordered the wrong ones and now i'm waiting for the proper ones to arrive which are chrome and the right sizes)
    -put spacers under the pickguard to accomodate for the dogears
    -put the correct foam under the pickups

    What i still have to do:
    -fish out a nut on a string that got stuck in there after re-installing the electronics
    -install the proper dogear covers

    -Sand the neck down?
    -refinish?


    I hope you guys still like pictures ;)

    Nice job !

    For your neck, Scotch Brite is the solution. I do it to all my guitars, nevermind the price or model. It becomes as smooth as silk. You might have to go over it again every 200 or 300 hours of play or something, but it's 5 minute job.

    Guitar looks good. I like the dog ears. Chrome will look very cool, but it might tempt you to put on chrome knobs. Schaller makes nice ones.

    i'm not sure, i really like the black ones, i haven't found any proper ones for a decent price, so i bought a set of """real""" epiphone casino pickups from AliExpress and it cost me less than the allparts ones, lol
