So I was soldering today, all was going well, then all of a sudden a lug popped off one of the mini toggles I e-mailed GFS and asked them to send me another mini toggle, so we'll see what happens




(The second pic is supposed to be of the lug attached to the wire but you cant really tell)

If a lug popped off, you prolly overheated it.

That sucks, never happened before. I'm gonna wire it up with only the neck and bridge pickups until I get another switch

Yea, just regular Minwax ebony wood stain

I have Minwax ebony filler, which I didnt use yet cause I cant get the filler to match the neck stain, so I'm trying to darken it and if I cant get it I'm just gonna leave it



EDIT: ok, i took two pictures of the guitar for you guys as it is now... 2 pickups, both which are not installed right, no middle pickup, a killswitch which sticks up like an inch off the pickguard cause the rout isnt deep enough (very long switch), and not set up at all so its completely unplayable (the killswitch is fun to play with even though I only get a nice buzz/hum when I plug it in)

I think it looks really good, and just like everyone else says, it looks better in person




EVH style set up

The guitar is finally finished!

Switched out the red killswitch for one I got from smallbearelec.com cause I like the way it looks more

Scallops dont look the greatest, but they work great so its fine for me

Currently have no knobs since the strat knobs wont fit smooth shaft pots (plan on getting these knobs for it)

Added in a black ice mod by using 2 schottkys, and it doesnt seem to add any overdrive, just kinda change the sound, kinda like a tone knob lol

Height for the bridge saddle for the low E string cant be adjusted so that string is too low to use... plan on getting a new and better bridge, or maybe just new height adjustment screws, and there no high e string since it broke and I have no more strings

Sucks at staying in tune so I may replace the tuners as well later

EL Wire will be added once I finish the firebird I am doing
