    I know you got your answer but I'll just add this:

    I have not worked with the Zebrawood that is used in some of the kits, but TTBOMK, it is an engineered timber made from cotton wood and not real...

    Simon, you are correct! I measured a leftover PBG TL neck pickup today after intentionally snipping the coil wire and it is "O.L." that my DMM displays. A digital "zero" and "O" look the same and...

    Good work. As simple (conceptually) as cutting a pickguard seems, it is a job that takes time and attention to detail IMO. Not something you just "whip up". Especially when it can require a lot of...

    I must be confused. Two times I have fixed a single coil pickup, that the coil wire was broken away from where it is soldered to the lead on the bottom bobbin. I don't recall them reading a higher...

    What about ordering the "original copy" :confused: from the Korean company?

    I concur with Simon that there is something wrong, like a broken coil wire.

    Interesting project Simon.
    I'm not into the synth-guitar thing, nor have I ever worked on one so watching to see what I can learn!

    This would be my guess. I never apply tape to any finish that hasn't at least gassed off to the point that it would be ready for final wet sand an polish.

    It's not the best book-matching that I've seen, but unfortunately it can be luck of the draw with kits in this price range.

    I was just going suggest the Gotoh.
    Wilkinson does a compensated wrap-around tailpiece with G & B adjustable intonation that gets good reviews as well.

    ...but my hands are a bit sore!

    So today I de-fretted this neck and re-radiused the fretboard from 14" to 9.5".
    My old-man hands (particularly my thumbs for some reason) are a bit grumpy. Minor...

    Simon really covered things very well with the operational stuff.

    The only thing I'd add is about safety. Routers spin at stupid high rpm's and s**t can go wrong fast. I'm not saying to be afraid...

    Yes. The neck is currently a 14" radius. A bit too flat for my liking, so I'll pull the frets and hit it with a block, then re-fret it.
    I haven't decided whether to go with 12" or 9.5" at this point.

    Well I managed to fix up the bug damage, and then got 3 more coats on (mostly) without incident.

    With the second coat, a tiny but longish bit of lint (like a single fibre) made its way on to the...

    That should sound better now!

    Looking at the bridge pickup, you have it adjusted quite high. Hopefully you have adequate room in the cavity to go low enough.
