    Working outside the cavity but not working installed is often caused by copper shielding shorting a hot. In cases where the pot thread only just fits through the body the underside of the pot lug board is a prime candidate to be squeezed onto the copper and short. Insulating tape over the copper under that area is a good precaution and/or cure.

    May be worth a check.
    Scott.

    Thanks scott, but no sheilding tape as the the body is semi hollow. Culprit has been found we played a gig just before Christmas and looks like ive fried my leads 😁, (my ears were ringing the next day) pluged in 2 other guitars and nothing found a pit bull lead still in the packet and everything works, so ive been pulling it apart for 2 weeks because of dodgy leads. Doh

    IGOR, I know it can be done, the question is, should we be the ones doing it?

ID:	29703 my first scratch build is all togather and working, im pretty chuffed that i built this from 3 sticks of timber into a playable guitar. Intonation is all good, pickups sound great, the on off on coil split switch works. The only fault is the neck is a bit thick but i can alwats tack some more off and re coat with oil when i get a chance. The wife was very happy to see it gone from the kitchen table after 3 months and hung up with the others.
    I learnt so much on this, and its a great feeling to hear something ive made make sound
