    Drilled the rivets/feet off of a Pedaltrain Nano+. Installed poly-nuts so that I can raise the overall height of the board an additional 3/4" to fit an MXR IsoBrick underneath.

    Dang! Beat me to it!

    Anyway, I don't have a good home for them right now, so I'd best let them follow James home.

    I need to remember to take photos of these BEFORE I pull them out of the garage... anyway, this is a new pedal board I made. Sapele with an on/off switch controlling the inlet. About 25x13 total.

    Oh well... I have my softie day today.. but you are right, I should have called him out on the cotton rag cables. I was just totally swept off the feet by seeing an extra ground wire from him. ... I should pull myself better together. :lol:

    Rob, I think we are slowly wearing off on this guy! It all started back during the 4thofJulycaster days, you used cotton wire insulated pickup leads on those bad mamajamas you twisted up. Now with the Putincaster he scrapped a SUPER nice Schaller bridge (because it was too nice!!!) for one of my hatchet jobs. I'm telling you guys next is a relic. A white one like EVH's Wolfgang relic I'm betting...

    BTW for those that don't know the extra ground wire on the neck pickup is a separate ground for the cover. Usually they are grounded through the black pickup lead wire. The separate ground allows for the ability to use a 4 way switch for series and parallel middle pickup combinations without heating up the cover for unwanted noise.

    Got everything glued up, sanded to 400 and the first coat of tung oil on.

    My client had a really nice silver plate made up for the front. It's going to be pretty sweet.

    Getting the neck made up for the walnut Tele. Up next is routing the neck pocket, then the neck shaping.

    That fretboard is amazing. I really like the headstock shape and layout, what a cool build.
