WiFiGuy Posted August 20, 2007 Report Share Posted August 20, 2007 Been making some progress of late on my Semi Hollow Jag project, here are pics: http://www.geocities.com/savespark/Glued-up-front.jpg http://www.geocities.com/savespark/Glued-up-back.jpg Top and bottom are glued, neck pocket's routed, crontrol cavity is routed, jack mounting area has been routed, and recesses for control knobs have been made for pots and switches. Any helpful hints on any of the following would be greatly appreciated: Pick Up Placement I'll be going with a S-S-H (Seymor Duncans) assortment and would like to know about placement, i.e. neck, middle and bridge. Been reading a bit but thought I'd check with some of you before taking the router to the wood. My neck is Warmoth Std. Strat style with 25 1/2 inch scale. It does overlap the bottom of the pocket so I know I can't be there with my neck PU. I'd be interested to know about how far I should be from the last fret and how far away from the bridge I should be. Trem Mounting Screws I'm going with an LR Baggs Std. X-Bridge Strat replacement tremolo with piezo pickups under the saddles. Since the X-Bridge is sold as a replacement, I didn't get any mounting screws--or at least don't think I did. Any ideas on what I should use? Neck Installation Any ideas on how to get the neck holes marked on the neck pocket once the neck is lined up with the center line? Am I correct to think that THIS is one area that I should try to be as precise as possible? Making a template is not out of the question but will take some time. Claw installation in rear StewMac's instructions say to use a special "aircraft bit" to drill the mount holes for the claw. Is this really necessary? and how far in do you go with the screws. Saw a picture someone posted of the screws not being flush with the claw--is this normal? Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
