The main pivot would be a good place to mount a Tremolo arm :wink:

Wondering if I need to hard tail it. No more progress today as I’m marking assessments. Happy days.

The trem mechanism may protrude from the rear of the frame. Should be able to put a mech guard or something over it. :facepalm:

Neck pocket height and screws are critical unless I drill more holes in the neck heel and plate.

When I picked up the donor I got offered this. Needs rewiring and better pickups so it was a steal. And no it’s not getting chopped.

Clearly a Chinese copy, I'm afraid....I'll give ye £25 for it including postage, and you'll also thank me for it.






Worth a try, you might be tipsy.

Got more done today. Used old bird table.

No that’s not a reference guide to mature singles.

The issue was that the pickups are too wide for the box sections of the frame.

Also that the trem bridge was never going to fit. Hard tail top load bridge incoming for a fiver. Bird table solved the other problem. Bit of matt black humbrol.

An ingenious solution on the pickups, loving how the tone, volune knobs and pickup selector look against the raw ally 8)
