I can think of at least two reasons that I like Sho-Buds

1. Ldg sound test.

Not a Pro lll at all, Has to be some kind of modified Permanent, then the end plate was cut out for the tuners. The decal is Pro lll. Also notice all the extra holes on the underside.

Progress has been slow on this but here are a few up dated photos. The underside has been cleaned and reassembled, and all castings were polished.

How do you clean the parts? I've use carb cleaner spray cans to get the gunk out from the rivet area. What's your trick?

This is a very nice Round front LDG That I am going to Clean up. It still plays great and looks real good, but I think it needs a good cleaning.

This is a LGD that was built with a Metal neck. I just finished installing a complete new changer, and did a set up and service. Here is a sound bite with Gary Thorsen playing.

Great looking 9 string Fingertip Mike. What does the underside look like, and is it original? I have not seen a 9 string single neck before. I did find a D-9 Fingertip which I have to restore.
