Lesson to learn...

Recommended Posts

OK, time to come clean. I made a small mistake on my SG. Nothing really serious but a mistake none the less. I was looking at the guitar on its stand in the corner and noticed something didn't quite look right. The pickguard curves do not line up with the body curves. I made the pickguard out of 16 ga. stainless steel, cut out w/ a jigsaw and polished down to 1/4 micron METADI diamond compound. Then it came to me (SLAP! to forehead) I made a 24 fret guitar and used a pickguard for a 22 fret guitar! I still have some stainless stock left so I guess I'll make another template from the CAD drawings. I'll just have to "move" the pickup and bridge mount holes. :D
