I just finished my brotherhood build for this year. Thank you Brother Dave, Marty, Freeman, George and others that gave advice. I like it so much I am building another one. I just finished the actual woodworking of the guitar today. Just took it out of my little paint booth…Because of this and that I had to tweak it 3 times to get the color I was after. These pictures are with late afternoon sun so the colors are brighter than in normal light. The difference with this build is I will be installing dummy coils to make my set of Seymour Duncan Phat Cat P90 noise free. I am very curious to see if these dummy coils will effect the tone of the Phat Cats. I promise to have a video demonstrating with and without the dummy coils as I will have a switch to bring them in or out of the circuit. Will also provide a little wiring diagram how I do this. It is fair to say why do this. Two reasons. I put in a set of Bill Lawrence’s (Bill and Becky) take on a noiseless P90 his L610 in a humbucker size on my last build. Love the P90 sound…hate the look of most P90s. The body of this build had already been routed for humbuckers….It is my last body made from this piece of lumber (figured maple). Wanted to use it for this so went looking for a “pretty” stacked (noise free) P90 humbucker with a nickel cover. Only found the Fralin hum-cancelling P90 – Humbucker $330 for a set and it does not come in a trembucker size… (Tele and Strat string spacing). I am a Seymour Duncan fan so went with the Phat Cats single coils for this build and will make it noise free myself. This guitar is a tele body shape, modified to a double cutaway. Maple drop top on alder. It has a set neck that joins the body at the 18th fret. (same as some SGs). The neck is a one piece roasted maple and I use a zero fret. The bridge pickup routing is as deep as possible to accommodate the two needed dummy coils which set under the bridge pickup. The finish is 2K Simtec (used by Fender and Taylor) I used Black, Bright Red, Medium Brown and Vintage Amber ColorTone Liquid Stains from StewMac to tint the Simtec. Put the burst on with an air brush and the clear coat on with a Harbor Freight spray gun. The bridge is a Hipshot Fixed Bridge with a .175 floor height (higher than the normal .125 floor height because my neck sets a little higher that it should (don't know how that happened). The tuners are Sperzel Trim Lok with staggered post. Really like the clean look of no string trees Pickups Seymour Duncan Phat Cat P90. It takes this 2k product 24 hours to cure completely so will have to wait a day before I buff it out and begin putting it all together.
