I'm doing a top finish only on this 69 that showed up with the original finish sanded off. It looks pretty good in gold.

Here it is with the gold and the first coat of clear.

After the binding is scraped and now comes the fun part of matching the binding color to the rest of the aged binding.

Why not plug the Nashville TOM insert holes and install an ABR-1 with posts? What are those two extra holes for between the bridge holes?
