It really is a nice neck.
However, the guitar has about a kajillion scratches, dents, wear marks and all over "relic-ing" and the scratch by the output is just one among many. It's really apparent in other pics, they're everywhere. I plan to leave them as is, partly because it's all honest wear I actually like the looks of, and partly because it's easier.
The top is rather thin, and the square plastic plate around the output jack is a previous repair that's been there a while. I think it'll stay.
Simple does appeal to me, although this quitar will mostly be for writing and recording, so looking for quality and some variety of sounds.
I'm also looking at coil taps and combined pots that do volume and tone (push/pull) and other possibilities... According to Duncan, a coil split Invader sounds a bit like a P90. I am intrigued.
I'll probably only do this once (hopefully) and the guitar was very inexpensive
so, while I'm on a budget, I do have a little spending room. Pots and switches are relatively inexpensive. Also, I am not in a rush, willing to investigate options.
