    Had them all in and fully done up within 5 minutes on the one I did! If you have a stiff harness that keeps everything exactly in place, then it really is simple. Fine for a 335-style anyway. Not...

    The past couple of days I've been spending my time on the headstocks, spraying the face black and building up enough depth of paint so I can sand back the abalone level with the paint. But I sprayed...

    Can't you change the other cap values to be more akin to the one you like?

    And compressors will amplify any noise upstream of it once you start lowering the threshold and the electronics...

    Some people use a G-clamp holding on to the inside faces of the two pickup routs and suspend the guitar from that. It is still a bit of a balancing act. I just did one side of the body at a time on...

    I can't tell you the neck routing depth exactly, as it will depend on the neck dimensions and the guitar body, but for a bolt-on you are looking at around 20mm, and a set-neck probably double that. ...

    No real point sanding the veneer, it will be smooth enough. If the stain is water-based, then it will probably raise any loose grain, so you may deed a very light rub-over with say 800 grit...

    If you close it too much, you'll have problems with the pickup ring not covering the edge of the rout.

    It is a weird circuit (to one used to Gibson and basic Fender wiring circuits) so takes a bit of following, but the interaction described above is no worse than the interaction you get on a Gibson LP...

    Not necessarily an antenna, but to be effective it needs to be grounded. But the back of the humbuckers should already be grounded, and the tape's stuck to that, so as long at the tape has...

    I have ideas about how I'll get straight lines, but I'll need do do some small cut-outs to fit around some P90s, and getting those neat is a bigger issue. Another learning/swearing experience.

    Unless you get into complicated switching to add in extra resistors, then that mix of values is a reasonable compromise to try and balance the various normal pickup requirements. The 500k common...

    That's standard with all the kits with that style of neck joint. There are a few kits like the ES-1 where the neck has a rim that butts up against the body so it's pre-positioned, but most require...

    They are mass produced, but not by CNC machines. Routed out by hand using a template. They normally get them right, but occasionally some do go a bit wrong.

    The single-core pushback is often tinned, but the multi-strand pushback generally isn't, as tinning the multi-strands once assembled would make it stiff, not flexible, and pre-tinning the individual...
