3 'buckers?! Suspect

Unusual on this style of guitar to say the least, assuming they're original.

Not sure I'd use the centre pup, I dislike Lesters with 3 'buckers, but you never know eh?
Can you shut it off?

Takes you back a few decades to see something like this, very cool. They really don't make them this classy anymore.

Sit on it for a while, see if you still want a re-fret. I would say yes, but time will tell.
