Hi All! After getting this MH1000NT a fair while ago in a bit of a state its long been my aim to get some new hardware on it. The original locking TOM bridge's posts were mashed, and the Locking grub screws were seized making it a nightmare to adjust. The Machine heads were all corroded & although sounding great the guitar looked a right mess close up! SO. Having allways been a die hard Black Hardware fan, I thought it was due a refresh with all black hardware. While I was at it I gave the back of the neck a satin finish with some super fine steel wool. Now it feels even better to play and has the looks to match in my opinion.. Win win! Anyway... The Pictures. (excuse some of the crappy phone pics) Few work in progress shots (the red neck was the tester on my old Epiphone Special II for making the neck satin ) How it was- The tester- The new neck finish! - I took inspiration from the neck join on the ESP M1 for the masking lines! Gave the frets a polish & cleaned / hydrated the neck All Old hardware off. Shiny new hardware & Sperzels On! And a few snaps of it outside. Gotta love that blue! And a final snap with its Brother before the brother goes off to a new owner!
