  3. I present this beauty called "DEVA JAZZ·". Deva is the godess of water in celtic mythology, and in the region where I live in, are descendants of celtic. This guitar is suitable to any situation, both distorted hard rock sound and clean as well, so it addapts like water to its container, and jazz for her neck Seymour Duncan SH-2N jazz PUP. It is a really all terrain guitar and this is the reason I designed and built her, for a friend who plays in orchestras and due to this, he needs a very versatile and lightweight guitar. I've been building guitars for nine years and it all began with a knee surgery which apparted me from work and normal life during a whole year. Was this way that I began to read about guitarbuilding and developed this art which I'm in love with. My first guitar was a bubinga and flamed maple top explorer model resized 10%, with which I discovered this amazing forum. DEVA is actually my sixth guitar. All my projects are developed in my garage, which I've conditioned as my workshop. Also have designed and made a lot of machines and jigs for this purpose. The body of the guitar is made out of Spanish cedar because I love the tone of this wood and also because is quite easy to work with. The top is a selected piece of European maple and the first idea of my friend was a solid white finish, but due to the beauty of the timber and its eye-candy grain, we decided to go with a natural nitrocellulose one. The neck is a multilaminated wengue and bubinga, and the profile is ultrathin following the specifications of my friend. The specs are as follows: Body: Spanish cedar with maple top Neck: Wengue&bubinga 5-layer multilaminated with 12" ebony fingerboard Frets: 24 Jumbo Scale: 25.5" Nut: TUSQ Bridge: Hipshot black Tuner machines: Schaller 3L+3R Switch: 3 way toggle switch Controls: 1 volume, 1 tone Neck pup: Seymour Duncan SH-2N Jazz Bridge pup: Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Finish: Nitrocellulose natural Gloss Hardware colour: Black You can follow the building of this guitar with another three in the following link: Some pics of DEVA JAZZ: Thank you so much for your time and for reading my entry.

    Types of wires and how/when to use them properly!

    Is this correct to connect all the cavities with terminals and connect to a ground of the pot to make the shielding effective? Scorpionscar
