If you try bone - be advised if you cut with a Dremel (or something similar) it stinks pretty bad and produces very fine dust that can't be good for you.

I just kept the plastic nut it had... the warp in the neck is better, but still kinda sucky. you can play it, but action is way high...

it really needs the treatment from warpedneck.com but I'll let the next owner do that.

MPC wiring is all back together and working properly... I even scored a deal on a set of 3 modules though one of them is dead.... (still a deal)

2 of the modules I have seem to work okay, but I don't think work well with a bass....

working modules I have with it:
Phase Shifter (2 of them)
Tank Tone (seems like it works, but not suited for bass)
Power Overdrive NOS board with all new components...
Octave Box (seems like it works, but not suited for bass) (missing box end and trim pot adjuster)

non-working modules:
Power Overdrive - Epoxy Brick version
Dynamic Fuzz

both seem to drop the output level at one end of the adjustment, and have a slight boost (maybe) on the other end...

need to cut a TRC, then it's off to eBay...

Well, now I know why it didn't have a truss rod nut when I got it - can't find out the truss rod needs work with no nut !!! Mick, you do great work !!!
