Thanks all...funny thing is, this is my second restoration! It was more difficult than the first, but turned out really nice and sounds fantastic! I learned a lot and enjoyed doing it, but I already have to many kits and I really want these to be played. I'm going to be at Chicago so I'm willing to deal. So if you want a great vintage kit at a great price let's talk... oh I have a gazillion pictures of every part of the refurb.
