Joe, looks like you are just about ready to rock. Thanks for all the photos and info.
Thank you for watching and commenting it is always helpful to have support.
Joey......what does soldering the wraps at the ball end do?
It reduces string breakage on any guitar trem or not and on kahlers it helps reduce friction on the cam making it smoother and more stable for tuning. It is simple to do but not 100% necessary if you don't break strings or have tuning problems.
I am almost finished I had to make some adjustments to the rubber pickup springs.The middle pickup is about 3/16" shorter in height then a standard single coil so it is just about all the way up. The rear humbucker needed to come up too. I tried a less thick shim but the foreword/backward adjustment screw hit the strings. I will post some pictures and video soon.
Here is a few shots of the completed guitar( minus the high E that I broke).
The light isn't so good today I will take more pictures soon and some sound.
All of the pickups sound good clean and dirty the bridge is really crunchy but has a strat quality to it maybe from the fiber bobbin.
I made some sound clips I will attach them asap.
Lordy lordy that is purty.
Thank you very much!
Wow, nice work Joe, one of a kind.
Joe, you did a great job. That's a killer looking guitar, I love the big neck dots, and the color is beautiful. Really nice work.
Great work Joe!
Thank you very much.

thank you as well. I am very happy with those dots despite the wrong position for those after the twelfth fret.
thank you it means a lot to me coming from you.
beautiful build man!
