    No. 39 is on its way to me.

    I have indulged in a guilty pleasure today.....sometimes good outcomes allow us some good things in our lives.

    So...this returned special order on sale is coming my way.

    I also ordered some more vintage black and white wire, 3 x mini CTS 250k pots and a switchcraft jack socket.

    I think the neck is looking like a candidate for an oil and wax finish. The body is Basswood....so maybe a stain and oil and wax finish as well.

    Otherwise....unless the CTS pots have a different shaft diameter...I don't think there will be much other changes. Stock pickups, stock bridge and stock tuners, stock nut.....maybe some strap locks and nicer knobs.

    Edit....nicer knobs....an orange drop cap....strap locks...and two of those round flat string trees....Real Parts order on its way.

    Ozz, got a spare 250K push/pull? I mean, if you wanted to tweak things slightly...

    You know strangely I do....are you thinking a series parallel push pull. I like how you think. 😎

    Yep, but slightly different to that layout. I’ll sketch it up.
