    Ok. So Iíve managed to level frets, get it all together and strung up.
    But this little bugger buzzes almost everywhere on the fretboard!

    I think Iíve got two issues
    1. Getting the nut right for the strings to rest on the zero fret
    2. Waiting for the strings to pull the neck up so I get a little to bow in the neck

    Anyway....... here are a some shots.

    Kit pickups: Plugged in the guitar has an amazing sound. Really surprisingly good!

    The neck has an amazing boom to it whilst the bridge is bright and clear.

    The bridge pickup is a little quieter than the neck and I tried to bring it up but it is up as far as it can go. Maybe Iíll take the springs and cut them in half to get a little more height.

    It looks unreal. Setup is always something you need to creep up on, hopefully with some use and time strung up you'll be able to dial it in nicely. I do really like the shape and style of these guitars.

    If it's buzzing on open strings that probably means nut slots still too high. Had same thing on mine.

    Right..... I got the slots down far enough.
    Lots of buzz removed but it is still there.
    Oh well. Also Looks like I butchered the nut. Lucky its just the plastic one.
    Iíve got a spare bone one somewhere that Iíll prep up once I get a little bow on the neck..........
    To be continued.....

    What happens when you use a low e string to cut a slot for the high e string????

    Doh!

    Although I have not fitted it yet. I can see mine will benefit from a string retainer to hold the D and the G down firmly in the nut slots.
    I kinda made a bad decision going with a moslike roller bridge. It raised the string height considerably vs using the stock TOM.
    Been quite happy with my last fret level and general neck relief attempt.
    Am going to try a shim at the deep end of the pocket to raise the neck angle to be greater than the bridge height at it's lowest. It's got heaps of adjustment up if I need it.
