    Lol no worries man. Enjoy...and be sure to post pics if you un-tele it!!
    There's another one on the 'verb...Super Sport with Sport neck and (i assume) aftermarket TV Jones pups...can't quite get to amicable terms considering all of the above.
    The quest continues!

    If it's the gray one that looks like it might be the correct neck and body combo. The listing offers no info on age, pickups, anything and that price seems more than a tad high to me. Funny though, I now have an Axis set up as a Tele, and a Tele (Cabronita) set up with TV Jones like the Axis you're watching. I like the TV Jones pickups and they work great in the Cab. But that Tele sees no use now and will see less with two Axis on hand. Might need a new home for that one...

    Quick update on the refinish. Looks like it finally made it through repair, sealer and primer! Maybe start seeing color soon.

    Working towards an homage to the Dargie 1 scheme. After much angsting over a true match I went with Kandy Lime Green. Being sprayed Thursday I hear.

    I have an exact same guitar, and really like the read with the black pickguard. But that Dargie looks killer!!!

    Well, using what I had I got it all back together today, set up and playing beautifully. Axis Humbuckers, switch and HH pickguard are a couple weeks out so that's a project for another time. Dying to get it out and play though. I'll take some sexy pics when I can and put the entire refin in a standalone thread for fun and posterity. But for now here's what it looks like as a complete guitar again. The color is actually a bit brighter and livelier than these pics have captured. The difference is stunning and with everything fresh, clean and polished this 22 year old beauty looks and feels brand new!
