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.

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. IMG_2345.JPGIMG_2348.JPGIMG_2346.JPG

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.

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. IMG_2423.JPG

Looks good, bud! Great job!
You plan on filling the holes?

They don’t seem to be filled on toms guitar, so I think I’ll just leave them.
