All that i need to finish this monster is the AANJ bolts and washers, a gold Gotoh hardtail bridge with 2-1/16 string spacing(5 bolt mount), a vol pot.

I can't wait to complete this. 8)

i can probably do that with the volume pot.. but the AANJ bolts and washers are a special size as well as the bridge.

I didn't check before I sent it, but I thought there were neck ferrules on that body. If not, I check for:

Neck Ferrules
Screws
Vol Pot
Bridge (a big maybe, but I'll look....again ;-))

I'll let you know this evening

oh .............. i almost forgot. i need an input jack too.

i don't know if a regular 1/2 inch barrel jack will work. it is set up like a JEM in the side of the body at an angle.

Ok folks...here's some pictures. The guitar is not assembled yet. I just kind of layed everything together. The bridge will be different, the volume knob will be knurled gold, the hole where the old volume knob used to be will be filled in, and everything will be bolted together...oh also strings will be on it :wink:

Thanks.


Just laying these pieces together got me extremely excited.
I can't wait to get the final pieces to finish this.

btw............ the Super Distortion in the bridge is pink. The pictures make it look red. And that is a Tone Zone in the neck, and a Fender Texas Special in the middle.

When i wire it up i will only be using a 3 way selector: neck, middle, bridge with a single volume. That's it. Simple.

Looking good, Ron!

You'll certainly have a one of a kind guitar!

The people here are amazing. Enough said.
