I got a guitar though a trade and its a dixon fat strat. The guitar was black on black to start out with it looked something like this
I couldn't stand it anymore so i made a new pickgaurd out of plexiglass and put switches for each pickup so i could turn each one off independently, the other two switches are for switching between humbucking or single coil.

I did all the wiring myself and also all of the plexiglass work.I'm only 17 so I'm pretty proud. What do you think?

It's pretty hard to find someone as hardcore as Tom. The race for hardcore supremacy would be pretty close but i think Tom's got his nose just in front for now...

its nice...
no need to brag about how young you are though...
the people here are here to see you work and offer helpful advice etc.
so for next time i suggest that you pretend that everyone using this forum is 17 aswell... because unless you are like 10 or under then your age is not really something to brag about...

nice job though... even if you were 40

I imagine one switch is a master kilswitch, one to turn on the bridge pu, one to turn on the neck pu, and two switches for coil splitting(or tapping).
What did you use to shield the electronics and cavities with? Regular Aluminum foil?

Honestly I have no idea what type of pickups they are they came with the guitar there are no markings on them what so ever. The 5th switch was going to be used for phasing but it didn't work, so right now it does nothing. As for shielding my dad has some i guess its Aluminum foil tape for duct work, it has an adhesive backing on it already so its very easy to work on. Yea i decided to go with submicro switches and that was a mistake because it was so hard to solder wires on to those small poles.
