    WOW. Good neck repair job. Guess he didn't think about using those saddles on the trem bridge.

    Here we go again.
    This will be the first Wheelz 9000 tremelo edition.
    This is one of 4 bodies, 3 necks, and multiple fretboards that came from one $200 board found at a local hardwood store. Keep me goin for a while!
    Had to rework the model substantially for this MannMade trem bridge including a little flat plateau for the screw mount.

    Quick little mock-up on the Craig County Floorcaster.

    A little light relic'ing on the hardware to match the decades old knobs from a movie projector.

    As nice as guitar that is, my eye was drawn away by those Talenti Ice cream containers. I'm addicted to the salted caramel. Seriously, nice work, let's see those other pieces as well.

    Those Talenti containers are awesome for anything finish related. I agreed some nitro in one and it kept well for a couple years until I used it.

    I'm stilling oiling the non reverse firebird body, but also working on finishing up my first scratch builds. I need to fix some stuff on the korina firebird before I can finish it, but the other two are really close. The tele took a spill while it was hanging so it's been put away for awhile dude to how angry it made me originally.But that stuff happens.

    I've also had that billet of black korina for over a year and have been thinking about making it into a lap steel. I think that would be a fun little project and the grain is awesome looking. IMG_5923.JPG 1095988E-8538-4121-8588-77C6F851D8DE.jpg IMG_5949.JPG

    Despite my misgivings on the Jazzmaster, a JM came up at a reasonable price so I joined the club recently with this mij 66 in blonde. I didn’t mind the stock pickups but figured if I’m gonna experience the JM vibe its best to have the correct pickups in. The picks tell the story. S

    Home stretch... the last 4 flat ribbon cables go in the already crowded box.

    I even made a paper template before cutting and bending the cables - my OCD taking over:D

    All in...

    And a few cable ties to make it look tidy..


    Last but not least. Checking out if UCCNC recognizes all the hardware. All 5 ports accounted for and tested.
