    At least I think it's mappa. I rpelaced the stock bridge with an Allparts Hipshot-looking clone. I removed the saddle extensions & reverse-y the 6th saddle. double magnets on the neck pup, shielding tape under the hood. Labella flats. Stew Mac string trees. Fender chrome bumper.

    and it works! [​IMG][/url]

    i had to put the saddle teeth back in & removed my shims. The action is a little high so I may have to make adjustments but I'm just really glad it works! sounds nice w/ magnets, no hummmm

  8. Wow that 's really pretty. Good job man!

    I see what you mean about the headstock. It's fine as is, but somewhere deep down I want it to be black...
