I have to apologize to Richie but I did modify it. I took epoxy coat off and I painted it with shellac paint in which I added oxide white pigment. Pick ups I replaced with Lace sensors with middle one to because I like middle tone and when I move switch up and down I got interesting wah effect. After I tuned the bridge (proper position, four springs, six screws not tightened to much) it sounds and plays like Blackmorizer. Everybody should have it.
