2019.8.21: I had seen this piece hanging in a store for many years and also at auction in the past.
When I first saw it in person, I gave up on it because the price and condition were so out of proportion, but the price was reduced and I was able to purchase it.
2019.9.14: The paint was peeling off the end of the neck and the frets were floating, so I had it replaced, the paint repaired, a tension bar added, the PU replaced, and the electrical system redone.
The center PU is on the verge of breaking a coil, so I may replace the whole thing along with other metal parts.
2019.10.20: The bridge was changed from gold Floyd Rose to black Schaller/Lock Meister and the pegs were changed to black GOTOH SG381 because I was still concerned about the deterioration of the metal parts.
2020.2.26: I had all the PUs and the color of the switch and direct-mount jacks replaced with black at the workshop to balance the overall sound.
2022.2.16: The center PU was replaced from SSL-2 to SSL-1RWRP.
I am now able to mix with hum coil taps to cancel noise.
The stock front and center PUs sounded quite crunchy and not mild.
