    Drilling a small hole to accomodate the ‘dag’ prevents the pot from rotating (you see the holes on some Tele control plates etc), but it’s not really needed. It’s more common to just bend the...

    Do some tests with your blue stain on some scrap wood first, ideally before you get the kit, as Blue + Tru Oil = greenish (often).

    The GS series are relatively new kits, so that's why they aren't specifically listed with a diagram. The 2 Humbucker 2 Pot 3-way Toggle diagram is the basic layout you would use, it just depends...

    That type of hum can often be caused if the hot and ground are accidentally reversed on the output jack lugs. So that’s the first thing to check. A bad ground solder point or stray wire strand...

    The PBG BG-46 diagram appears to have an extra switch on it (a 3rd toggle switch) for the bass pickup selection, which the kit doesn’t actually have. This means it should really be one selector for...

    The holes should already be pre-drilled for wiring/earthing on all the kits, unless you've got one that's faulty or specifically requested a custom order without holes. Do you already have the kit...

    The pickups are obviously different, but you can just use the FVB-4 diagram. The ‘hots’ from your pickups go to the switch lugs, and you can connect their grounds to the switch’s ground lug which...

    Correct. Bridge - goes straight to ground and Bridge + would replace the red wire on the phase push/pull (top left to bottom right lugs).

    Yep, Brendan is spot on. The factory has changed from 2-wire (hot and bare) pickups to 4-wire (plus bare shield) versions.

    From the photos it looks like you've slightly misread the PBG Twin-Neck diagram and added some connections that are killing your sound. Understandable, as it would be easy to read the diagram that...

    Yep, that would pretty much work. Again, the pickup selector will be a little strange in series mode, but some like it that way. This time in the Bridge position you'll get an 'off' with no output,...

    What you’re wanting to do is easy enough with the two push/pulls, and your diagram is in the ballpark.

    Your tone lug connections are a little off, with the way the pot is drawn you’d have the cap...

    Pot->Cap->ground or Cap->Pot->ground are effectively the same, the difference being with the latter you save a length of wire as the cap itself is the link between the volume and tone pots. How much...
