My son came home a few minutes after curfew, do we ground him? Any normal parent would, but wow..he walked in with is 10.00 curfew breaker… an Black Epiphone SG Junior in need of repair.

The input jack was ripped out, etc..etc..etc… it looked like Cat Scratch Fever all over again from way back.  But it had a gig bag, with parts ta boot! A gig bag that I believe it never laid rest in.

I started out tightening loose screws, while inspecting this after curfew special guitar.  I tightened the neck screws, 4 screw bolt on.  You can only imagine how trashed the jack was and it has been replaced, looked like a tin roof, with plenty of cat action and no rain to wash away the stain.

I did not like the standard tuners, so I went into my arsenal and replaced them with a pair of Grizzly 3 to a side tuners.  (They may be Gotah Tuners, but..I am not sure, the package and directions have since hit the recycle bin)  The P-90 pickups had been quite abused in it’s previous life, that’s life before Bucks Guitar Modifications.

I found two stripped out pole pieces in the P-90 Dog Ear Pick Up, I JB Welded the hole and re-tapped them.  My son was in charge of the re-wiring of the input jack, god almighty at six foot 4 and not wanting to play for the Chicago Bears, he best find a niche.. I am getting him to follow in my footsteps, other than playing football, as my wife would wish a box seat at Soldiers Field.. not happening sweetie pie.. His response to me..

“I gotta start something pops, before you get to senile to teach me.. ”

Story will continue as the Epiphone SG Junior after Curfew is still on the bench..
