So very close…

Friday, April 21st, 2006

Barring final setup, John’s guitar is complete.

Covers are all buffed out and installed (including the trussrod cover Pete!), the wiring is complete, and the tuners are installed. Infuriatingly, one of the tuner bushing got damaged during installation, so that’ll have to be replaced in time - it’s a small cosmetic problem, but annoying nonetheless. For reference; when heating tuner bushings with a soldering iron to remove them, ensure all solder is removed from the tip, otherwise it might end up stuck to the bushing. Stuck rather better than the gold plating as it happens…. *nuts*

Excuse the long whippy string ends - the strings get removed a few times during setup and adjustment, so I haven’t gone to the trouble of using a locking wrap and trimming them to length.

Edit - I’ve moved the pictures of John’s guitar into the gallery section Heres.
