Thread: SG Kit - First Build Diary

  1. #21
    I know I know. But from what Adam suggested above if I bought SG/LP pickups they would fit. But should have measured first.

    In other news the tuning pegs are on the headstock and the neck and body buffed with dingotone wax. Just waiting for hardware and shielding to arrive. Hopefully I will have it loaded this time next week!

    upgraded the caps and wire. Just waiting on the upgraded input and switch. I think i am going to buy more copper tape and shield the control cavity too. After that it should just be a case of loading the body....fingerscrossed!!

    Im losing the waiting game...
    I went to the post office to get my vibramate so I can finally mount my bigsby and guess what....they sent me a bloody bigsby instead of the mounting plate!! All the way from America! Now I have 2 bigsbys and no mounting plate...
    Anyone know where I can get a black vibramate v500 in Australia?
    Or else I am gona have to wait even longer!

    I think that might have to be done. Realparts have silver ones but can't find a black one in oz.
