Shaped neck and first coat of snake oil.
A lovely start to that finish. Do you squeeze your own snakes?
I thought he was married.
Stripped tuners down and powder coated, re-greased and rebuilt.
Very nice, man! I'm impressed how much effort you put into details like this. My lazyness makes me go with the hardware I can purchase and use as is...
Had another disaster with this one. I widened the pickup wire entry hole to the control cavity by just a few mil and caught the wire harness I'd fitted internally when gluing the body halves together
I spent 4 hours delicately carving into the side of the control cavity with a thin wood chisel to squeeze the soldering iron in to fix the harness , luckily it was a success. After filling the carved out area with car body filler you'd never know once the shielding goes on
Starting off this comment with "had another disaster"? What is wrong with you? You darn near gave me a freaking heart attack.
Nearly had one myself when I saw the wires come out stuck to my my drill bit
Honestly, I don't care about the wiring harness. You maiming yourself is of much bigger concern. I read "Had another disaster" and said, "Oh no, not another limb tore up... oh, it's just a wiring harness? Seriously?"
Yeah the bench mark for that's considered a "disaster" in this thread is pretty goddamned high now.
Dude, that is so tragic. I have followed and admired your builds ever since I joined this forum. I seriously wish you a strong and healthy revovery.
This thing turned out to be a nightmare in more ways than I care to mention but its finally done and I love it. I'll take some more pics tomorrow and do a NGD.
That thing is ridiculously cool Can't wait to see more pics.
