    EX-1 finally done.

    Been a long time getting this one finished and below I have listed all the mods and upgrades:

    5 Coats Dingo Tone Coolangatta Gold Base Stain
    5 Coast Dingo Tone Coolangatta Intensifier Coat
    20 + (maybe even more) coats of Tru Oil
    Dingobass Bone Nut and Neck Setup - best investment anyone can make. Awesome job and many thanks DB.
    2 x Bourns 500k Audio Taper Push Pull Pots - one used to split neck PUP to slugs and the other to split bridge PUP to screws
    Set of Tonerider Alnico IV Classic Vintage Voiced Humbuckers
    1 x Sprague 0.022 Orange Drop Tone Capacitor
    1 x Fidelity resistor & capacitor volume control upgrade
    1 x Gotoh 3 position switch
    1 set of Grover Locking Tuners
    1 x Rosewood Truss Rod Cover
    Dingo Tone Wax used on Rosewood Fret Board & Truss Rod Cover
    Cat music Conductive Shielding Paint
    Epiphone genuine Explorer Hard Case

    Only standard parts used were the Bridge, Tail Stop, Strap Buttons & end jack plate and 1/4" socket as too hard finding a black retaining nut for a switchcraft one as threads differ.

    Not your average EX-1, but not too far removed either.
