    That's fantastic, Rick! I can't believe how quickly you were able to put together such a complicated build and to such a degree of success. Brilliant work, man!

    So very cool, man! (on so many levels)
    Sounds great on "Get Back", and I want to hear more.

    Ok,

    A quick little video so you can hear the guitar a little bit.
    I'll apologize in advance for butchering the Beatles song :lol:
    I think I'm officially more of a builder now than a player.

    I think I'm suffering build withdrawal. I'm wandering aimlessly
    around the house not sure of what the heck to do. :D

    This has been a great thread to follow, thank you. Congrats and well done. It's inspired me to try an ES 295 build....Using your techniques to thin the sides down to size and your bending jig.

    This is where you just drop the bat, admire the ball in flight for a second and start jogging around the bases. You knocked it out of the park.

    Well done on this excellent project.
    As I am about to start building my own ES335 I was looking for dimensions of this guitar to make sure everything is spot on.
    What I found is a lot of CAD drawings that are not all the same.
    I was taught that the distance from the nut to the 12th fret and then the distance from the 12th fret to the bridge center must be equal.
    From my CAD file the bridge is towards the tailpiece of the guitar. If I move it forward towards the neck to get it in place, it will hit the first pickup. Can I simply move the pickup further forward ?/// and by how much ?
    Therefore I would appreciate it if somebody can give me a drawing or even better an accurate CAD file with the correct dimensions.

    Thank's
