it is, but it does nothing if the metal isn't grounded, so you solder a connection to each and then make sure there's a path to ground and it shields against EM and RF Interference

Well I was mistaken... I dont even have to solder it! It has a connection thru the glue... Quality 3M stuff

Update: Installing springs, bridge, nut. tuning the strings and then... playing unplugged!



More are about to come

I think what he's saying is that the aren't in line with themselves. Like they're crooked on the fret.

I still cannot understand what is the porblem...
I don't consider a difference between my original strat and that one, regarding the inlay.

Meh. I think I preferred it when it was all rustic-looking with the rasp marks and stuff. Now you've gone and made it all shiney...bleh!

I kid. That's one seriously impressive piece of work. Have another golf clap (now you know what it means)
