    There may have been stickers over them in some incarnations of the guitar. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They don’t seem to be filled on toms guitar, so I think I’ll just leave them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Finally got the knob. Pretty happy with how it came out, and it nails the Dude Ranch thing through a Mesa-ish patch. That being said, the invader is not the greatest pickup in an LP for most other things, in my opinion. A JB is my pickup of choice though so it may just be that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Got a plug for the switch hole. It doesn’t fit 100% perfect but I’m not trying to hunt another one down so it’s gonna stay. (It didn’t quite fit so it had to be super glued in). I also leveled the frets. This is like, the third time I’ve don’t that and I have to admit I’m pretty happy with the outcome. There where spots on the neck above the 12th that where completely dead, and now all notes play clean with the action pretty low. Didn’t polish the frets as much as I could have so they’re a little rough feeling, but I suspect they will feel better as the strings contact the crown over time. Now to get the gold knob I ordered weeks ago... you have to love shipping things direct from China. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Broke out the dremel. Got the top routed out just enough to get the switch in place. Pretty happy with how it’s looking so far. Time to wire it up, find a chrome plug, and finish the set up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Picked up some needle files today, gonna see if I can’t give that switch some more room. If not with files, I may try to dremel it out some. Stay tuned. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yea, I look back at your pics and I see it.... I know what I have to do it, but have to figure out how to do it without destroying the top. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good to know. I’ll probably just leave the off white ones on for now. Got the bottom knob hole opened to 1/2 in, the the top is too thick to fit the original through. So I’m gonna see about finding a longer one. If not I’ll have to route it some what. Only problem with that, is that I don’t own a router. So not real sure what to do there. I wired the guitar up with just the bridge pickup and the volume knob just to see how it sounds. Kinda muddy so I need to see if I can dial some of that out but it’s promising. Got the truss rod cover installed and the nut slots opened up. Threw some strings on it and got the set up roughed in. This is has turned into a pretty cool guitar, especially since I’m well under the $500 budget I set originally. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cool, man. I bet they have some 1/2 inch ones too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I’ve got some gold knobs coming. The black plastic for the back would be a nice touch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks man. I’ve referenced your instagram a few times already in this process. The only thing at this point that I’m a little unclear on is the plug thing in the switch hole. I’ve not seen anything quite like it. I’d love to track something similar down, but it’s not 100% necessary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don’t, but I’d appreciate whatever you shared. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Dude that would be sweet. I gave it some thought but figured it would be nearly impossible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
