    Hi Waz,

    Good to see you got the glamour shots in there. Its a shame that some of them are a bit blurry but I know that you got a lot on your plate at the moment. maybe in a few weekends time you'll have the time to take some hi qual ones.

    The one in the case taken from halfway down the neck capturing the shine is my fav! looks like it should be a screen saver on my computer.

    I've never been a fan of then pickup rings look, but it definitely suits the stripped back nature of this guitar. It looks like a no-nonsense rock machine. Great job.

    Hi Wazza, looks great mate. I love simple, stripped back guitars.

    To tell the truth not a big fan of the explorer, but after seeing yours I could be turned.

    Hi Guys, back from about 10 days annual leave break and thank you all for your kind comments.

    Bit of a story behind the no PUP surrounds....... you see, when measuring scale length for gluing the set neck I did not even think about leaving a small amount of room for the neck PUP surround as I was so paranoid about getting the scale length exact, that is my OCD side coming to the fore.

    Anyways, after neck had set I started to do a mock build and that is when I realised a neck PUP surround would not fit as the heel of the neck was flush with the PUP route. DOH and plenty of other unsavoury words were muttered. At first I was going to cut one to fit and even considered using Rosewood to tie in with the fret board at end of the neck. It was only when discussing my plight with a work colleague who has a EVH Wolfgang that he suggested to go top loaded and no PUP surrounds. Looked into it and checked out the Wolfgang online and kind of liked the stripped back look better than traditional PUP surrounds.

    Another mind baffling moment was with the Tone Riders as usually with a matching set the neck PUP's have the screws nearest the neck whilst the bridge ones are nearest to the bridge. Not this set, first giveaway was that if flipped to what seemed normal way around the wires were too short and upon closer inspection, and also cross referenced to at least 2 other humbucker equipped guitars, I noticed that on the high E side of the bobbins there is a small hole that shows some of the copper wire, and this seemed to indicate my neck PUP had to be loaded as shown with screws at rear and slugs at the neck.

    As I was coil splitting neck to slugs and bridge to screws it has worked out well and sounds great with all the combinations available and will have to upload a sound clip at some stage.

    All up the kit arrived on 12 November 2015 and whilst technically finished on 15 April 2016 I have only just decided on which photos to use for GOTM. So mine has taken about the same time as Andy40's Spalted LP and we now go head to head in this month's GOTM.

    Plenty of stiff competition every month so no point holding it back. Thanks to all the encouragement and kind comments along the way.

    GOTM only gets harder given the quantity and quality of entries submitted as each month passes. Just happy to be amongst such fine entrants.
