Ah,now I get it, that sounds like a fabulous idea!
Turning 40 this year, so, I know rulers with grooves, but no metal ones, at least not from school😉
But I will ask my father, he is a hoarder of old stuff,maybe he has something that might be cool to be turned into jackplates.
My oldest is 40 this year, good luck 🤞😁

Made the toggle switch routing for the neck selector.

And I hit a channel I obviously routed before gluing the top on. 🙂 Did better planning, than expected, very nice!

The drill bits arrived ( I bought a whole set in 0,5mm steps, I hope I'm done with that now...)and I drilled the holes for the 6 string bridge. And while I was at it, I laid out the location for the pots and the switch, drilled the mounting holes and routed the deep dishs. Then I made a template for the electronic compartment. Tomorrow I'll do the covers and the output jack and then I can start sanding.

Put on some stain today. I didn't aim for a particular colour, just let it work out itself. It became kind of an almond burst, I'd say.
I also put on some oil with a brush, so, it's hard to photograph the colour accordingly, especially, as the light in my workshop is very limited ( just one light on the ceiling, no windows).
