It looks like tinted nitro, not PU. If you're going to respray with a solid colour, just scuff the surface enough for the new paint to take, then shoot it over. There's no sense in stripping it...

Jaden of Jaden Rose Guitars is based in Carmarthenshire, if that helps. It might be worth sending him an email to ask about a set-up.

It's definitely something you can do at home by yourself though

The black cloth-covered wire inside the braid is the signal from your pickup. The braid is soldered to the tone pot, then the hot is soldered to the volume pots.

Did you mean that you want to get it closer to ebony in colour? Rosewood is usually only a little darker and deeper than walnut. I'd advise against using a standard black dye - they often give a blue...

It's okay to do both, but boils down to personal taste. Seymour Duncan and some other manufacturers do wax-pot with the cover on, others pack the pickup and solder the covers.

Neither way is going...

The covers should also be wax-potted onto the pickup, because they can vibrate and give microphonic feedback too. The pickups have already been potted previously, so I'd expect you can leave the tape...

Sounds like microphonic feedback from the coils moving a little inside the pickups. The solution would be to get them wax-potted again. Take it to a tech, luthier, or pickup winder in the know and...

Ace work with the refinish so far! It's coming up a beauty.

This is absolutely sublime too:


Do the splines rotate and damage the hole, or come out clean?

This usually means you have a bad battery connection, dead battery or the stereo jack has been wired incorrectly. Pickups (EMGs included) very, very rarely die.
