Excellent. I'll check it out when I get home. My work headphones finally fell apart yesterday. Saw you posted the 330 on the Ricky replica thread. I'd love to make one myself but it's way beyond my skill set. Congratulations!

The last image of the Weller XITS. Now starts the next instalment. The Lichtenstein WHAMMM 330 for me :D My second should be better than the first.

Hi, sorry, late to the thread. This is beautiful work. I would love to embark on a project like that. I have built two guitars from parts, to get a feel for how neck alignment, action, etc is supposed to work. I think I'm ready to try a complete build. Thanks for the inspiration.

What happened to all my photos i wonder. fb will not host for anybody nowadays it seems. ill see what i can find. Here you go. So i got some vinyl cut to get it looking like Wellers XITS all black 330. Cost me 80 pounds for the R tail. pickups hand wound to 1970s highgain specks. using rubber magnets like the real ones.
