Just wanted to share my Mirage Custom that I finally brought back to life after locating an excellent condition Sinclair trem. its been oit of commission for about 6 years.
buffed out alot of the hairline scratches on the paint
polished the frets
cleaned and conditioned the fretboard
cleaned the pots/pickup selector/input jack
Used contact spray on the electronics
very happy that Its back in playing condition
guitar screams now!
Had you tried to fit an Original Floyd in there? I was able to fit an OFR into the cavity on my (black) Mirage Custom, but ended up routing it to gain a bit more depth for pulling up on the trem. But I've seen other people that said that the would have needed to route the cavity a bit wider to fit the OFR.
I had to put a Floyd on my 901. Sinclairs are just crazy hard to find, and I need a chrome one, and when I do find one, it's either left handed, or black. Congratulations on finding one!
I love the paint. That era Is my favorite. Nice job on the whammy. That's one good lookin fiddle.
