Starting to get ready to try cutting some fret slots. I just needed a question answered before I began. Now that itís been covered, I think Iím ready to give it a try soon. Maybe tonight even.
A box of stuff (the technical term) came in the mail the other day. I havenít been able to really do anything due to a med test that has kept me away from power tools for a few days. All clear now, and time to get back to work, but I shot these yesterday. Just because I had to. Come on everyone, cut me some slack, youíve all done this
The pickguard will need a little finagling. It just doesnít play well with the control plate. But thatís okay. Iím not really thrilled with the single ply guard, and I really got it to make into a template for future builds. I think I need to set the control plate first, then work the pickguard to fit that. But I am so very happy with what Iím looking at here. I can truly see what this thing is going to look like. And itís easy for me to visualize the color. And at this point, I just canít wait!!!
And best of all, the neck plate fits the holes Iíve drilled. Yes, itís probably insane to drill the holes before you have a neck plate, but I trusted the drawings and master templates. Heck, you have to trust somebody sometimes, right?
I just have to force myself to continue to work slowly and not rush anything. Weíve come too far to screw it all up now. But every time I get a chance to work on it, Iím amazed at the progress, and at how much fun it really is to do this.
Till next time then.
