    The only thing I'll add re: the pickup wire hole is that it shouldn't require drilling all the way through to the control cavity.

    Yeah, the SD diagram shows 250k's, but that's SOP with single coils. I'll see what Alan Entwistle says if/when I get a reply.

    Nice work Rolf. That finished up great.
    Definitely bonus points for the "feathered" headstock! I wish I could be so adventurous, but I tend to steer towards traditionalist :(

    So having the flat toggle lever is imperative?

    If that's the case, I'd just pony up and buy the $20 dollar one from Realparts. ($27.80 w/ postage)
