The idea here is to keep it relative to my favorite guitar, roughly the same body style with a slightly different shape, bolt-on neck 25-1/2" scale and 9.5" radius. For electronics, I'm going with a pair of P90s, probably with two vol and a master tone control. Since the pickups I bought have a narrow polepiece spacing, I want to have a 2" string spacing at the bridge end. After seeing the excellent hardware that Herb made for his snakehead build, I thought I might try giving it a shot. I thought it'd be a good idea to do a little polishing and drill the holes for the adjustment bolts on the back edge before heading to the brake to bend it. I managed to scratch things up pretty good drilling the rest of the holes, but with a little elbow grease, I was able to get a decent surface going on. A few more hardware pieces left to make and I'll move on to making some templates.
