Glad to see there's still some life here - looks like a pretty good finish too. On the home straight now!

Did some bits today, added a small chrome washer around the hole for the piezo wires, to make it look a bit nicer once the bridge is over the top, ran the piezo wires through their channel to the control area



Installed the pups



I made a control plate for the jacks.



Just waiting on a couple of mini switches and then it can be all wired up!

Got it all wired up, it's pretty snug in there, didn't really leave enough room for the preamp, but hey I'll know for next time.



3x dpdt on on on's for series/split/parallel for each pup and a selector



Made up some cavity covers

[


Basically all done at this stage!, Needs another good buff and polish, and needs a good set up, but basically done



I'll be sure to get some better pictures tomorrow after work

Tomorrow by midnight is when all the challenge builds need to be in, hope all those who entered have something to show for judging, best of luck to you all

Jesus, and I thought my wiring was complicated! Very nice stuff man, I like the covered string ferrules on the back (though I imagine it might get a bit old after a couple of string changes). Pretty jealous that you're still in Christchurch - how're things holding together down South?

Blue.... what did you use to make your jack plate? I've got to find a replacement for the one on my LP so I can take out the active electronics.

Strung up, and a couple of wannabe arty photos taken.











Some final specs:
Purpleheart/Pine/Sapele body and neck
Ebony fretboard
Gfs lil killer and dream 180 pups.
Series/split/parallel switch for each pickup. Mini selector switch.
Ghost resomax piezo bridge
Artec MB1 blender preamp. Piezo/magnetic/both selector switch
Magnetic/piezo/both jacks, plus blend xlr jack.
Grover mini rotomatic tuners

Looks like thats a wrap folks! Thanks for the support, I needed it with this one!

New to the site but I love guitars. Seeing your progress as you did your build was great. One of the best looking guitars I have ever seen. Very nicely done!

That looks great, this is easily in the top 3 of my favorite 2012 builds. I'm not sure if I like this or the Death Note les paul more, either way it clearly paid off for you to go through the hell of trying to cut each piece and getting it all put together.

You should go work for Gibson building their robot guitars. They need someone like you.
