Working with brooks now to get one done. Unfortunately the bridge posts are not standard. My goal was to keep the base and swap out the top. Turning out to be a tad more complicated. Will update you when Ive got er done.

Yes they are from Dr Knob. The pickup rings are from LMII

He made these super fast. Like overnight. He also asked for a picture of my guitar top so he could match the Koa best he could.

They're being delivered today so I'll have some pictures later.

They look great. I need to tighten them a bit more. My allen key I have is a bit large

Hey man,

What kind of a case is that?  The ones I have that came with the equators aren't great so I was thinking about replacing them.

Ameritage custom case. Took about 3-4 months to get, built like a tank. My biggest complaint is how heavy it is.

Looks sick!!! Curious if you have had any issues with your old Standard sounding muddier and less crisp. Curious if you switched out your PUP and wirings.

Me too! I'm in the process of new wiring and new pups. I'm doing it because of exactly what you are asking. I hope it fixes it on my mini.. I'll let you know. I won't have the pup for another 2 weeks probably .

Let me know the word and how it turns out. I need to dig into my old red stripe combo amp and see if my capacitors need replacing as well. I hear that can add to the muddiness as well.

Tru. I will. Did you always have this problem? Check the volume pot on the guitar. Make sure David didn't put a 250k of something lower than 500k. On one of my guitars that I wanted brighter I put a 680k pot and that did the trick. You could try a no load tone pot as well. All this will brighten things up.

Just curious if your volume pot is in front or back towards the rear.

Mine original had it reversed. And it was muddy. I would get the electronics double checked.

Since were on the topic of volume pots....Been trying to do some research to see if I have a pot issue or a ground issue. I attached some youtube links with the hum that I am getting through the pickups. Changing the volume levels, and not getting any crackling when I, just more hum. All dimmer switches and fans are off in the house.
Checked the pots in the amp, and they all still look good. Went through the tubes and all seem to be good.
Plugged it into the blues jr. and got the same hum.

 Curious if anyone has any insights....

There is also crackling when I put my graphite Adamas pick on the string....while the plastic pick does not crackle.
Ground issue?
