    I just can’t seem to stop modding....:confused:
    This time I added a aged pearl pickguard to my DuoSonic and changed the bridge pickup to a GM Texas Special. Since there is already a GM premium middle pickup in the neck, I thought what the heck, might as well.. and it turned out great. I really liked the Duncan Little 59 I had in the bridge, but I had just put two humbuckers in my other guitar, so I thought I’d keep this one single coils only..
    Oh, and I made a cutout in the pickguard for truss rod adjustment without having to take anything apart. It’s right above the neck pickup.
    Here’s a before and after:

    I like the new pickgaurd. And I never understood why they would make the truss rod that hard to get to. Smart move making the cutout for that.

    Thanks about the bridge.. I got them off EBay, but they have upgraded bolts from Ace hardware. I would get some Gotohs, but the string slots are just right and the intonation is good with these.

    And I got the idea at the last minute for the truss rod adjustment cutout and went at it with a Dremel like a crazy person, but it turned out good. I remembered how much of a pain it was to take the pickguard off just to adjust it, and I didn’t have enough energy to talk myself out if it. :confused:
