I've got all of the parts except for the bridge pickup but, I'm happy to see it coming together. Very light weight warmoth swamp ash body, mighty mite rosewood neck, guitar fetish pickguard and mini humbucker, Stacked tone pots, push/pull volume, 3 way switch, plate flipped just like the blacktop series, gotoh sperzel style locking tuners (staggered heights, might not need a string tree)...and a JB in the mail.
Two issues I have to deal with:
- the neck cavity. I need to open it up slightly, one side of the mini hum is not sinking in far enough.
- The pickguard is not resting against the bridge humbucker ring. I can't imagine carving or sanding away the area above the control plate, which is what I would have to do, so any suggestions for making it flush? Does it really even need to be flush with the bridge ring?
