Agreed, the RS Tractor replica is super sweet. I know that's a Darkstar pickup, but what did they use for the two Jazz pickups?

Want to make it look even more like a Tractor? Get some of the Hipshot ovals to go on it. [smilie=cool-smiley-027.gif]

30+ years ago I tried to make my own without having a real clue about the Tractor [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

But I did a LOT of stupid, stoner things then.

@ Dave: yes, that's my Tractor on the ABB-site.

And you're making me really jealous with that big piece of history in your hand there, awesome! :-)

I like the bass a lot! but I don't like the dark star tilted. you're not going to gain any sonic benefit. It looks like Berrys' luthier might have had a little too much medication when he installed the darkstar......I say leave it.
