Deja vu all over again.
Indeed, it's so exasperating that to keep me from doing what I know I should not do I resurrected a more than three years old Burst build in the meantime...
That's a nice picture of the curl, Ken.
I used to own a '68 ES-330 (neck-body joint at 19th fret, like the 335s), but that was in my pre-building days so I never investigated the actual construction...
I know there's no full centerblock, I would assume there's a neck and a tail block.
I know that the bridge posts are screwed into a couple of small internal blocks that extend from top to back. But did they also have the contoured bracing ?
Oh no... not again... please
+1 enough already.. we don't need it everytime..
I'm only concerned that Ken will get the usual "cease and desist" letter.
Google "trademark 74570029".
PM's are a bless (-;
Ken is "robust"... he can take care of things himself
Nick... remember? The case was closed
I'd better post something quick...
The circuit in the 335 is made outside the guitar on a template and is designed to fit the holes with minimal wire slack. This insures no rattling and shorts. It is also designed for ease of installation through the F hole so all the electronic components are stringed on one single long line.
in order to do the harness correctly I made a small ABS template to hold the components in their correct relative place. I also draw all the connections for my wife since she's very good with the soldering gun but doesn't understand exactly what those circuits do (-;
Ooh, Wiring. Now we're getting to the "hard" part.
After the walk in the park that is...
Soldering is the part I like least!
It's a 10 minute job if you use the right gun.
I use a dual step gun. (Ground with 130W and the legs with 30W).
Gil it is soo much fun to see these builds, we all appreciate the time you spend to document these things and share your knowledge and it is rare to see such information shared so freely by a great builder. So in essence thanks.
OK, officially, I need help.
Last night I had a dream that we were all watching Gil and Ken working on a body...
I felt like we were in a mall, (I think Vince was setting up to sell slap chops next door) Ken was trimming binding and we all sat there like kids watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.
Personally, I find soldering therapeutic, it's like wheel building (spoked bicycle wheels).
You get in a zone, and after a while, it becomes Zen. The whole universe is being connected.
hi gil, once again i am really enjoying one of your build threads. in the downtime between your posts i have been reading your past threads and i have noticed a glaring discrepency between this build thread and past ones in that it is allready up to page 19 and neither you nor ken has shown us what is for lunch also i was wondering how the new shop was coming along and wondering if we will be getting a tour of it?
You're very welcome.
What did I look like in that dream?
You're right. I'll cook...err... look into it (-;
Once the new shop is ready I'll take the photos... or... do you prefer a shop build thread?
