    Nice! Do you wire the P-90’s to a lever switch just like you would a Strat pup set? Or do you have a special wiring scheme for that?

    On the fence here. I have a nice maple neck I got from @Papa Joe that I have cleaned up and have ready to go. But a rosewood fretboard is under consideration...

    They would both look great - but I vote for the Maple, it would tie in perfectly w the creme plastics

    Tracking shows I will receive the pickguard assembly today, and I should have the body and the rest of the parts here by next Tuesday. And then the fun begins! Still undecided on which neck, but that decision should be easy once I see each on the body.

    I don't believe I have ever received a USPS delivery on a Saturday after 7 pm. But I did today! Thanks for the great packaging, @mdparent03! I have a great feeling about the outcome of this project.

    Here is one of the necks under consideration. Got this one from @Papa Joe in a trade...thanks again, sir! After a little cleanup and adding the string trees I'm pretty happy with this '70s style neck.

    Photos coming on the rosewood fretboard under consideration...

    That Maple neck has a nice vintage worn look to it. It will go good on that body and with the cream colored plastics. Glad you got the assembly in perfect order. Looks the same as I packed it. ;)

    All the parts are in! I tried out the necks on the new body, and I absolutely agree with all of you who gave their vote to maple. I hope to get started in earnest this weekend.

    Thanks Ken! Yeah, PapaJoe got a nice one to me. So far I'm very happy with how it is coming together. I'll get some pictures up of the Wilkinson Tremolo bridge and Gotoh locking tuners I plan to use.
