    Pointless update time.
    The neck is coming along. I wound up making up my own colour for it. I put down the Dingotone Black Stump which really just looked dirty on the maple and didn't really darken...

    It will be. Apparently the neck is arriving today. Radius block I doubt I'll see within the next week or so.

    I'll see what happens. A little out of my already broken budget. I'd hope that a fretless neck might come in a little closer to right to go. We'll see I guess!

    I'm thinking I'm about done with the...

    I wound up ordering the PBG fretless neck earlier. I'll survive with the side dots.. I haven't been able to see frets when I'm standing up playing for the past 20 years, so the side dots will do me....

    I was thinking earlier whether or not I shouldn't just order a fretless neck and go right out there? That'd really make it something different. If nothing else, it'd save me having to level the...

    I revisited the wiring briefly last night and it all looks OK, so I suspect you've hit the nail on the head.

    I put some TO on late yesterday after about the 6th coat of stain (I used the sum total of about 25ml of stain). It took a few stain coats to get it to even out, but eventually I got there. It...

    OK. I reckon this is the roughest I've received (theres even splinter-worthy bits in the routing). I'll go easy on the heavy grit just to be safe and see how we're looking when I hit 320.

    Well, the kit arrived today.
    A little disappointing:
    - The "stripes" are blotched on the top so that really isn't ideal
    - The pickguard came screwed on. Possibly good for a rookie. Not good for...

    Honestly never paid that much attention to it - the electronics were all pre-wired. Sooner or later my Epi LP will get its humbuckers ripped out, so I'll take care of it when that happens. Not...

    The bad:
    - The driver skipped when I was putting the bridge screws in, putting a hole into the finish below it. It's gonna take some time to fill and polish it up.

    I'm a pretty big fan of Gotohs in general. I find a $100 set of tuners on a guitar reasonable. Not so much when they cost more than the guitar is worth :)

    I've never really paid any attention to DM's before. Might be time to add them to my list for consideration. I might wait on that until I see whether or not I can actually get a finish on this body :P
