    And now a little soldering. Rather than solder everything into the body I'm going to use some connectors so i can remove everything easily if need be.

    So far the only real challenge I've faced was the screws for the humbuckers were longer than the cavity. I shaved a couple of mm off to get the pickguard sitting flush. Everything else has gone smoothly. (touch wood)

    The body has 3 layers of primer, 1 more and I'll top coat. The neck has about 12 layers of Tru-Oil, so I'm going 3 more then done.

    The pressure is on for a name. Going with a red for the body, i asked my daughters to suggest a colour, the went for orange 1st, then red, i felt orange was a 2nd build colour........

    99% there on the wiring, ran short of connectors to do it all but that can wait.

    Time to sand some primer off the body and give that a last coat of primer before top coat

    Looking good ghalalb.

    The little connectors is a good idea. I've been threatening to use them for years, but have yet to incorporate them into a project.

    I think they would be particularly handy on the multiple common ground connections. De-soldering and re-soldering those to the back of a pot can be a PITA (and where I can sometimes let myself get a bit ugly if not mindful).

    However, I started doing my common grounds using a ring connector years ago which makes thing tidier. and easier to undo & redo.
