Stardate: 20190108... As previously reported, replaced the standard p/ups with a pair of zebra coil Tonerider AC2s. Fitted a pair of raw nickel covers at the weekend - not a fan of the open coil look on a semi. Having gotten used to how it looked with zebras, it now doesn't look like 'my guitar' - goddammit, does this mean I'm 'in touch with my feminine side'??? Nevertheless, they're staying! I AM loving the 'non-shininess' of them. Heving been a chemist in the plating industry for over 20 years, I'm now pondering obtaining a little hydrochloric acid to strip the chrome from the hardware, to expose the nickel plate.
