    AIB 1-F New build

    Just started on my new kit. Seems decent even if the top was not perfectly aligned. Will once again be Schaller hardware on my build included also their Hannes bridge with piezoelectric pickups

    Start to get bridge in place with tuners.
    Alot of work as there is lots of cables from the bridge.

    Cherryred/black sunburst or grey/black sunburst is my idea of finish. Any input on that would be appreciated.

    That hardware is really nice. As for colour of burst, it's obviously very subjective but I'd be super into a grey/black burst

    Think its looking nice in cherry/black and it will match HW good.
    Lots of glue stains int the maple unfortunatly. Almost done here with the front.
    Also ordered DiMarzio pickups.

    Slowly make some prgress here.
    Using https://nitorlack.com/en/varnishes/stain-en/ dyes, easy to work with so far.
    Will be tight fit on preamp, trust me on that.

    Iíve know people have built kits on their dining table but I think this is the first one Iíve seen built on a washing machine. Donít let the spin cycle vibrate it off the top. Youíre doing a fantastic job with the staining. Look forward to how it looks when it gets clear coated.

    I like how this is turning out, really nice work Piece. I always find it such a crying shame that factory doesn't recess the control or tremolo covers.

    I do love those Hannes bridges, If I ever get around to building the 7 string that is floating around in my head, I'll be using a Hannes 7.

    Holes in the back is made by me for the bridge. Beware of the work fitting a Hannes bridge. Its alot of mesuring to do there before drilling.
    It also took me some effort to find out how to handle all cabels as the manual from Shaller leave no clues what so ever.
    Cover for the electronics has to be on top of the back as the body is so slim I canít get the pre amp in, in any other way

    Wash machine is unplugged 😬😁
