    Getting set to carve the top. I use the round over bit to set the depth of the carve.

    The dual blade neck pickup needs a bit larger hole than a traditional SC. The coil wires are not soldered up yet but I needed to make sure it fit.

    Clamping up a body fix is always tricky

    Fixed. I had to put the belly carve back because a bit of the original one was still there.

    On to decals. Since this is going to be a beater prototype thing I want the decals to look worn out. Also wantto make it look like I didn't sand the pine 2x8s I used for the body so we will add some marking to them as well. After that we will seal the body up with CA.

    Once it is tested I will get some orangish butterscotch clear on this thing to make it look right.

    Assembled to work out the kinks before going to finishing. No finish yet just sealed in CA to keep the moisture out. Still need to finish pickups, decide on pickguard screws, and fit controls into cavity better.

    Guitar is still very light colored. Once the finish goes on we should get better contrast between the parts.
