Chris, I too never imagined you could play a Tennis Racket for real, first spotted them a few years back, but didn't like the idea much, Until!, I spotted the Videos by Eric Denton playing his builds, and quickly changed my mind!.   :-)

This is pretty rockin'. As kids, we used to air guitar with tennis rackets, never imagined you could play one for real.

"Thanks Poorness", the MGB Pup did come with a Plain looking Aluminium Cover, which I was originally going to use, but decided to use Tin Lid instead, to add a bit of character to the look of the build!.  :-)

I love the way you did that pickup AGP. Very clean and professional looking.
