Got the wiring loom in and tested too. Itching to get tuners and strings on tomorrow.

Sadly repairs needed on my car and house may mean that I’ll have to sell this on :x

All done.

Really cool sounding guitar. The pickups Have a compressed single coil sound that blooms. I’ll give it a proper workout over the next few days and tweak the setup once the strings have settled in. I’ll get some better pics too.
