Post Hard Tail Conversions
I have a 550 that has the trem blocked off.
I thought about doing the conversion.

Does anyone have pics of what Paul did to his guitars.

Is it one whole piece of wood that someone fills up the trem space on the front and back(spring claw area)?

Did he have the metal guide pieces put in the back too for the strings?

Thanks In advance

I have his Telesavalas and looking at it, it is very simple. Looks like a piece of wood for the rear and a piece for the front. Both pieces are rough cut, glued in place, then drilled for the string ferrules. Works like a champ.

I am having this done to my 300 since I cant stand the new necks on the 301s and I want the fixed bridge like Paul's. It should end up exactly like the one Paul is currently playing. I got the 300 for 700.00 from Ishibashi and it has the old style neck. I will post pictures when its done.
