Of course there's coil split as well.
Mine's an HH model. I put the pickups in my Strat and I'm looking for pickups. I'm thinking a Tone Zone-PAF combo.

If it's HH, isn't it a Pacer? And I'll update with a pics of my random mods/shit until I can get back on with this build.



And thank you very much, Leviman. I will definitely stop listening to my dad on matters of woodworking. (I realize that could sound sarcastic, but it's not. He's great with electricity, but woodworking is not his thing).

That's how mine looks currently.



Will go in the neck.



A small plate made of the stuff that spork is (anodized titanium) will go over the middle slot. Or something else cool that'll fit. I remember someone had lego men in their's, Phil X has a fan plate. I want something cool too!

The knobs and pickup ring are going back to black.

Strikers are just the cheaper model Kramers (Of the real 80's Kramers anyway) They came out in a verity of different pickup configurations. I've got one too. Mine was HSS with a pickgaurd. I moded it too only have one pickup/one volume and an OFR. I agree with you about the necks, they are absolutely amazing. I have never found another neck as good. I'm planing to make a new body for my neck so I can get rid of the plywood body Kramer made. I'm looking forward to seeing your mods.

I have the stock black knobs. I might get some pickups from my uncle's Les Paul

I'm genuinely interested, when will your build be ready for the red carpet?

When I get my tax return, I'll restart this build. The wood got messed up from a faulty router and dented from the jigsaw. I've learned a lot more about building from messing with what I have and reading more than I have by listening to my dad for this build.

This will be done, with a new body, sometime when taxes come in.

Just wait a couple more months and everything will be fine and go on some more. I'm not even going to make a new thread.
