^ Thanks!

I'm hoping to get this thing back from finish later today or tomorrow then I can get her together and ready to go.

I decided I did not like the three piece design of the humbucker bobbins. They were not as clean as I wanted so I re-made all four. This time they are one piece solid ebony and I am much happier with them!

Not to go back in time too much, but what kind/where did you get the magnets?

^ Presumably neodymium, you can easily get hold of magnets on eBay.

I cant find the exact site I used because I ordered them so long ago, but this site seems to have the sizes you would need

http://www.kjmagneti...ucts.asp?cat=10

I use all 1/4" diameter. 1/8" thickness for the cavity cover, 1/16" for the truss cover

Damn it... I shed a tear. Those pictures of you working made me remember when I used to that stuff back in the beggining of 2012. I must go back!

Great build btw!

Cheers
