It was my first guitar in my life and I was very attached to it, but it was hard to use as it was and the sound was muffled, so I decided to modify it.
I had a friend of mine repaint it and relic it (with a gay Lee Moore flavor), and replaced the volume, bridge, and pickups. The downside was that it was originally off-center and the neck would rise up quickly. The stock parts are probably a proprietary project?
The guitar was powerful to begin with, and the addition of the dreaded luster and extension makes it sound powerful and sexy. It feels great when you rock it. The center pickup is almost buried in the pickguard because it comes out too much.
18,000 for the set, about 80,000 for modifications.
