  1. Wanted to start an official build thread for this project. I had posted before regarding questions I had so hopefully you'll forgive what might seem like a double post. Will try to keep this thread focused on evolution... here is the body I bought - not bad for $178. Its a wd 3A flamed maple that has a good split in the back by the control area which I will need to fill in. as posted elsewhere my intended wireup... This weekend I went to rockler here in phoenix. I just found out we had one and man... I could spend years in that store. Staying on point: I bought a piece of 1/8" maple that had a little bit of flame on it ($13). I built it into a trem rout cover and a control cover. Not exactly skilled workmanship as my string holes are 'compensated' (feature not a bug) even though I used a drill press. Didn't bother clamping down my material so - lesson learned! Anywho, good enough for the likes of me so here is what that looks like: also, in the background is a simple jig I built for my dremel router base to use in cutting the 5 way slot once my bits arrive. Here's a shot of the body with the babicz bridge I bought (got a deal on amazon for $117! plus signed up for a card so got $40 off). Wasn't thrilled with the amount of 'wobble' in the posts (when not screwed all the way in) that came with it but I guess the general consensus is it doesn't matter. I bought some wilkinson locking posts but they don't fit as smooth so... I figure I can add washers if I need to raise it - to keep it screwed tight so they don't wobble. my parts bin on the right... so far have a graph tech nut, some gotoh sgs 510z magnum locking tuners, a 5 way super switch, a 4p3t rotary, some gold pickguard screws and a neckplate and screws - so far. Have two texas specials and a seymour antiquity middle in my 'misc' pickups bin so... waiting on a musikraft cbs neck that should be about 4-6wks out yet. will update as I go! Thanks for watching!
