athelas3 Posted May 7, 2010 Report Share Posted May 7, 2010 Hi - a quickie for you experienced builders! I am close to starting my first guitar build (using a Les Paul body plan) - one question, tho... I feel a bit nervous about hand drilling a hole for the ground wire between an underbody routed control cavity and the nearest bridge post hole, as it would seem this is easy to mess up if doing by hand. So I was considering using a radial prill press (with the head set at about 45 degress) and clamping the guitar body to a purpose built jig table, that has a mechanism to raise one edge up from the bench and precisely angle it in relation to the bit. Anyone done this or am I over zealous? If not, whats the best alternative? If everyone normally uses a hand drill and a long bit - how do you guide the drilling to perfectly hit the bottom of the brige post hole??
