    A tiny amount of surgery.
    In go the new racket-makers.
    I wish one of you wiring gurus lived closer. I will probably stall on the wiring for several days.

    Yikes.

    well, I knew with no depth stop or even a piece of tape, I was risking it. I specifically got this guitar to wrench on, so I guess I’m not gonna get all crabby about it. Just plug it, fair it in, and get on with my day.

    Hahaha!! I plugged it in... doesn’t make a sound. Got some other issues, too, but I sure think it’s pretty and it’s going to play great.

    It's looking fantastic! You'll get the wiring sorted out...honestly it looks great, I'd play the heck outta that.

    Sorry if you posted this already, but, where'd you get the gold foils?

    They’re just $40 guitarfetish pickups.

    52mm this, 56 mm that, posts that dont line up...
    Baby, I ain’t got time for all that.

    punched the peened posts out of the new bridge and drilled the holes out to 5/16”. Used a round file to make the holes into slots allowing me several mm of adjustment side to side.
    It needs a little fine-tuning, but it’s got both E strings in equal and acceptable distance to the edge of the fretboard.

    I’ll get a video or something up, but they sound pretty good! Like a big, full single coil sound... Strat pickups that have been counting macros, taking creatine, high protein diet.

    This pic maybe shows better how I can center the bridge to reconcile the string spacing issue.

    I was trying to get this put back together so I could take it with me on a business trip, but no luck. Had to throw it together fast and leave it home.
