spoke to Yuta today. Turns out the Zebra had more issues than I thought. New Stickup, New brass nut /bridge screws, refinishing, some fret work, new damper, new twist lock for strap. Emmett noticed a slight "wave" in the board which he will fix, and resetup for MR tuning. Yuta said it will come back to me like a new instrument, and I have no doubt that it will. I would love to see Emmett do his magic. Someone should record a refurbishing by Emmett and post it on You tube. Thanks SE!!!!

You're going to love it, Jim. What gets me is that all the extra work that Emmett does would probably cost a fortune in the hands of a luthier or a guitar tech. Emmett does all these little things that add up to make a huge difference in the way your instrument feels and sounds. For Emmett, this is simply his way of bringing his older instruments "up to code", if you will. I call that integrity and pride in your work.

Update: Stick should be done in a couple days. Emmett said the had to remove half of the fret rods and replace with new ones. ???? I didn't think they were bad, but ok, I trust SE. Whatever Emmett feels needs to be done, I am okay with. Getting anxious to start playing again. I will post some pics when it comes back.
