    Ozzbike, if you're making this statement with Timbermate and the reported issues of shrinkage in mind, that may be a fair call.
    However I don't think that should be a blanket statement for all grain...

    Hi Ben.
    Different products are going have different application methods. Some are paste-like and others are more liquid. So depending on what product you you're going to use, see what the...

    Yes, that is correct.
    You can either bend the solder lug so it touches the pot casing and solder it, or you can solder a bit of wire to make the connection.

    If you check out the January 2021 GOTM thread, Rodc entered his ES-335 and states he did coil splitting with push/pull pots.
    Maybe he can offer you first hand knowledge.

    If you mean between the pickguard and the bridge plate, that gap is pretty common, even on genuine Fender Telecasters.
    The gap on the real deal tends to be slightly less but it existence is not...

    A fastener supply shop likely won't have chrome ones like guitar parts suppliers, but you'll probably be able to stainless steel, which is not a bad thing. It's not like there highly visible anyway.

    That's probably a good approach. IF you're getting your Duplicolor from Supercheap, their Primer Surfacer works pretty well.

    Ok, that's good. You still at 656mm?

    Given the string-through holes are pre-dirilled, Mark's suggestion of longer intonation screws is a solid, non-invasive option.

    There has been a history of...

    648mm is the magic number (on paper) so you're getting closer.

    Sorry just saw this...

    Shouldn't need to saturate the cloth. "Just wet" sounds right, but if it's not coming off, and not having it in hand, I don't know I have any answers.

    Before you go hitting anything with the router, 10-12 mils seems like a long way off even for a kit.

    1) Adjust the treble E saddle so it's far enough forward (toward neck) so it has...

    Oh, what am I saying... if it was your project, you'd pull the frets and re-radius to 7.25" and re-fret!!! :p
