    That's a great price for a complete overhaul like that.

    Picked it up this afternoon, along with another bag of strings and a humidity control pack for the case, the whole cost was AU$165 / US$114.95. Much less than my initial estimate.

    Effectively for the work, I paid for a full setup, $70 ($150 value according to their price list - restring, fret polish, intonation, set action, fretboard condition & clean, body and electronics clean), a complete rewiring, $60, and the cost of a bag of strings, $12.95 (Ernie Ball Regular Slinky). I guess maybe since I removed everything first they skipped installation costs for pickups and pots, which would have made the entire cost double.

    Which more than makes up for the three weeks (and two days) waiting time.

    Possibly the neatest wiring I've ever seen.

    I understand completely. I'm very unstable regarding humbucker aesthetics. First I love the humongous SD print, then I want nickel covers with cream rings, then I hate the rings and want a direct mount.
    But, once you feel it in your hand and plug it in, suddenly it matters no more.

    With this photo posted to their Instagram, I guess it's done. Hopefully, now the photo shoot portion of guitar repair is completed, I will receive a call to pick this up by the end of the week.

    I just hope it sounds as good as it looks.

    Definitely. The wiring already looks much nicer than how it was before.

    They seem to be further along than I thought.

    Looks like I might be expecting a call tomorrow...

    Thanks for the kudos, gents. Ah, when I was a younger man (sips tea and reflects).

    UPDATE...

    I took my then empty guitar to the local guitar shop along with all the new parts and gave them the rundown of what I expected of them.

    That was just over two weeks ago (13 business days) and now I'm starting to get worried. But, I said no rush and they'll call me when it's done as always.

    It still feels like I gave them one of my internal organs for safe-keeping. Like, a very essential one.
