    Hey, people!
    When I was really super young, Metallica was like my favorite band and such, and when I was 11, my parents got me this guitar for my birthday, and I had already been playing for about 5 years. Now, 6 years later, I still love this guitar, and I wanna keep it forever.
    I've finally gotten around to change out those active plastic bricks for something much smoother.

    :barf:

    I was lucky to get a pair of these for a cheap prize! It's a calibrated set of Aftermaths with the chrome cover.

    But I couldn't afford to get all the pots replaced and the wiring done professionally, so I deceided to try doing it on my on.
    So, this one felt good.

    Yes....................
    And don't comments my "knobs", the previous ones didn't fit!
    The pot didn't even fit through the holes, so I had to freaking sand it.
    It was scary, but I will definitely keep doing this on my own!
    I Am The Happy. :D
