    One DT kit might do a Tele or a Strat, but a big hollow body like your kit probably has double the surface area (at least) of one of those, so probably two body kits minimum.

    Never used DT, and being in the UK never will, but I doubt it will get darker on its own. I know from reading on here that the intensifier coat (if you have one) will deepen the colour, but I'd...

    I'd definitely get hold of either a 600mm or 1m metal ruler first.

    And if you are unsure, ask first before...

    There definitely looks to be an issue, but it really is best to use a longer metal ruler to measure scale length so all the measuring is done in one go. It's a lot more accurate.

    That .047 uF looks wrong to me, as you’d get a 7 Hz filter point as it must take the pot resistance into account. 0.0047uF/4.7nF should give a 67Hz filter point, which would be more useful, but maybe...

    You could still try a 1 meg vol pot (or add a 470k in series as a test) What’s the actual value of the pot? >500k is always consideted better with humbuckers.
