coldnebraskablue Posted June 11, 2007 Report Share Posted June 11, 2007 Hi folks, Very new here, have recently started building a Saga Les Paul kit, noticed there were a few other people either doing or having done the same. Have managed a basic build, nothing missing and everything works (or at least it will do after I resolder the jack socket ). My plan is to get everything basically working and playable, and then disassemble and shield cavaties, paint/lacquer and maybe upgrade some bits. There are some pictures here of the bits and pieces so far. I have a question, hopefully someone can answer - the neck seems OK, but doesn't seat fully in the body - it protrudes about 3 or 4mm (close-up here: close-up ). Looking at other Les Pauls this doesn't seem right (they seem flush). Should I 1) remove a few mil from the heel of the neck (eg, sanding ?) ? 2) remove a few mil (somehow) from the body where the neck joins (eg, sanding ?) ? 3) live with it ? 4) something else entirely ? One other thing, there is plenty of electrical buzz until I touch something metal - is that likely to be a shielding issue, or a grounding issue ? Apart from this, the only real pain has been deepening the nut slots to get the thing to play in tune, but I'm pretty much there now on that. Any advice greatly appreciated ! Thanks!
