    First build finished.

    bought parts:
    Korean neck
    Fender RI bridge
    Fender RI neck plate
    Fender japan tuners
    Fender ferrules, strap buttons
    Dome knobs
    Milled jack cup + jack
    Cts pots
    Red button
    No headstock string guides
    Slotted screws

    built parts:
    No templates used
    Pine cabinet board body, 2 sandwiched together
    -blonde stain+nitro brushed on
    Fiberboard+nitro pickguard
    Aluminium control plate
    -Alnico 2 poles
    -self made bobbins, 1,3mm black painted + nitro fiberboard
    -AWG 42, 6,1kOhm
    -not potted as of yet

    Idea was to make a 49 snake-head proto style thing with namm show organ button-type electronics. Very crude finishing, but it stays together and feels good. Very light. Can´t really comment sounds or so yet, but it worked nice with a 5e3 clone.

    Next one I´ll build at least the neck and bridge myself too, can´t be too hard.

    Thanks tdpri folks, forum´s been a great source of inspiration and advice. After this build I respect all you experienced builders even more, if possible!
