    So, a little update. The output was dropping randomly and I narrowed it down to the jack so replaced that (it looked like someone had already done so previously judging by the solder joint) luckily I had a Switchcraft jack lying around and that seems to have done the trick. Put new strings on but put 9s on by mistake - I think it had 10s on before and I am definitely not used to 9s anymore - it’s like playing with rubber bands! Sorted the intonation and took it to a local open mic - the little beauty absolutely rocks!

    Still need to take a good look at the neck pickup - it doesn’t sound right even at that crazy angle - and I need to sort out a little buzziness on the high E string but it plays sooo nice for such little investment.

    I think it might be a keeper...
