            I bought one of them, unlucky for me there's a crack or two in my fretboard. I'm having a local luthier fill them in and I'll be putting new hardware on it soon as well. Dave at fretsonthenet hooked me up with new switch tips, the japanese one won't fit a standard switchcraft, it's some different thread. Stewmac gold pickup rings are slightly different than the stocks ones too. I see yours has the weird upper wing bevel too, I wonder why they came that way?

              Ty guys
              Yes scored it from a dealer I use in Japan. It's going to get the sand and buff. Along with a few touch ups.
              Yes Dave frets on the net is a good source. I have been emailing him for some things. His tip for the switch doesnt come.gold though. Im.going to scuff mine up and shoot it with 24k gold paint then clear it.
              Talked to a guru at Schaller Germany and the bridges are all done 24k color so I ordered some on Ebay for the tip.
              Just ordered saddles and everything needed for the base plate.
              The pickup rings I got were from a.seller on Reverb. They are a match. New screws everything.
              I even got new emgs 81 and 85 to drop in.
              Will share pics soon as I get it's back together.

              Have fun with your.Spitz pro your luthier will take care of the cracks

                          Finally the refurb is complete. Set up drop d tuning. Its sounds and looks great. I'm so obsessed with the Cushin Gakki Pro's

                          Take a look

                            Great job! Looks practically brand-new. Do you buff by hand? I find that's the most time-consuming, "elbow grease" step.

                              stripped it down then wet sanded it with 200 grit. Then 3m compound with the buffer. Then coated it with P21s wax. P21s is highest carnuba you can get.
