    Sounds good … I have the ability to sand back the face of the headstock and start that part from scratch, again. *thumbs up*

    Did the shielding, and a look-see with some of the bits in place.

    This week’s efforts saw me strip back the decal, and continue finishing the neck (fixing some blemishes from previous).

    With the body, the strap pins, bridge, pickups and pickguard are in place. Next week will be soldering and jackplug installation.

    Ordered some waterslide decal paper, and toying with ideas for a new decal (name, font, size, position)?

    Today’s efforts.

    Adjusted font size, used a shadow font, and changed a few things. Added a decal to the back of the neck, too.




    Soldering successful. Sound test (picture may not have sound, but it worked).
