    I got this KSD in and it was just not up to what I wanted look wise, or sound wise. So let the modding begin..

    List of Mods done:
    Changed all black hardware out to chrome except the string tree which is on order.
    Changed knobs from black domes to Sadowsky Knobs
    Changed Preamp from stock crap to a Bartolini two band I had laying around
    Changed all pots they were cheapos now there not
    Rewired whole thing from the rats nest that was in there
    Changed Strings
    Full setup it had some serious bow when it got here, and intonation was horrifying.

    Anyways here is a couple really bad pictures I guess I could of cleaned it LMAO. Im happy with it now, its growly and plays very well, and it looks a 1000x better in my eyes.

    dont have time or the desire to gig to be honest. And if I can get thru a single song with out mistakes it would be a miracle.

    I just like to play

  8. CHROME. No substitute. If the original set-up had a matching headstock, though......"None blacker". Very nice all around. Rewarding, no?
