    H/S/H set for everything

    It seems I have found my people. I am a total HSH guy I have like 10 guitars that are HSH. You mention Jazz and funk and good clarity. You also mention a Yamaha Pacifica. If I recall, the Pacifica is poplar or alder or something not mahogany? If that is the case, I have some recomendations...

    CAM software recommendations?

    I havent found any other CAM software that plays nice on Mac besides fusion. I use both PC and Mac and the interoperability for Fusion keeps me coming back. I use AlphaCAM at work for the CNC programing there. I havent used the CAM side of fusion outside of a couple demos because the post...

    Tools, Jigs, Templates, and Method Discussion

    Also add centerlines and other marks to make sure I can reference and/or mount them to the guitar body. I just do a simple V groove in the top of the print to let me align as needed.

    Oh for sure but a nice router and even an entry level 3D Printer like my Creality Ender 3 Pro is under $600 where a CNC that can do even just bodies will run few grand.

    Tools, Jigs, Templates, and Method Discussion

    As a garage luthier myself, I have found that a 3D printer has been invaluable to me. Need a drilling guide to make sure all the string through holes for a hard tail are in a line? Print a guide Control cavity routes? with recessed cover? what about the cover? print 3 templates and youre off...

    Dimarzio pickups - am I the only one..

    I dont think writing off the whole company based on 3 pickups is the way to go. I dont like all 3 of the pickups you mention in the OP but I generally like DiMarzio as a company and have other pickups from them that sound great. I am a huge fan of the Area pickups for Strat and I am having a...

    Jackson reverse headstock neck for a partscaster?

    The DKMG neck you bought will not fit a warmoth body. Sure it mught fit in the pocket (still not likely) but the scale length wont line up.

    Bridge pickup for a very, VERY dark-sounding ESP EII 7 Evertune guitar

    When you say very dark, have you ensured that tone is connected properly a few years back there was a fella on here who was on a quest for years to find pickups and then one day discovered his tone control was connected backwards. Might be worth de-soldering the tone control (one wire) to...

    G String wobble at 12-15 fret... ?

    Lower the neck and middle pickups. single coils can cause weird magnetic pull on plain 3rd strings.

    Jackson and fender neck partscaster question.

    As was stated there are a ton of variables. The big thing is that even when its 22 fret Fender 2-3/16" at the butt of the neck and Jackson/Charvel are 2-1/4" so that will be the biggest bar. 24 frets are a whole different ball game. If you want "LEGO" then buy from warmoth. They do a...

    RGD7 measurement

    They have made both 25.5 and 26.5 versions and the trem versions will be a little longer than the non-trem versions because the headstocks are pushed out by the distance of the nut.

    7 string tele neck building plan (CNC)

    This is a little nebulous. If you have a CNC and some dimensional drawings then making a "plan" for a 7 string tele neck is not that hard. If this is what is stopping you, then making a whole neck is likely a little more bite than you can chew.
