Well the big brown truck brought the new Zephyr home and I was very anxious to see if it made the trip OK. I've read horror stories about guitars showing up with broken necks. Plus the nostalgic feel of seeing and holding one of these. I played my old Zephyr for 10 years and to this day have no idea where it went. It is in great shape for the age. I got pickups to install and the knob notch washers. I got a vintage Electra, so I was told, bridge pickup and a new neck pickup. The knob washers came with it in a bag but the hole is too small for the pots. Going to look it over and see if I can just try and enlarge the hole or need to buy different ones. Came with a brand new Gator case.

Looks pretty nice DCD, and a new case is always good. As for the pickups, they don't look like any wire color I've seen on Electra's before. Slap in a set of Pearly Gates or Antiquities and you'd probably be a pretty happy camper. BurstBuckers would probably work really well too.
