I'm toying with the idea of putting on an Accent Vibrato on one of my 480's. Anybody seen it done?

As a matter of fact I have seen one before, I had a photo of it but I can't find it now. I'll look for it some more.

Stewart Macdonaled recently posted an interesting video with Erick Coleman repairing a troubled 480 that has suffered some fretboard seperation and truss rod abuse.

I know this is the photography forum but this thread has become the de-facto home for 480/1 guitars.

So I guess one will fit on a 480. BTW Erik, I took the 0.0047 cap out of 2 of my 480's. They lost some of the additional chime I got in the middle position (toaster and HB togeter) that was such a sweet sound, but now its much more functional in the bridge position, so it was a bit of a trade off. However, it is growing on me. I'll probably do it to #3.

This was always a well-liked thread by me in Jeff’’s 8) RRF Photograpy Forum here and I guess no one has acquired a 480 or 481 model in the last year :( and posted any photos .... I had to run a “search” on this heading to resurrect this thread, just to check out some of the previous postings of 480 - 481 models. I hope to see some 480 series models posted here again ...
