this is the repair. you can see it from the side, and in this pic on the top, but in real life, unless you're really really looking for it you cant see it on the top. not that it matters, as it will be covered anyway



and heres a little pic with the pups and bridge



havent done anything for a few days as iv been doing other things, and cant really do much more with it until my carbon rod arrives. which i ordered last friday, the same day i placed a stewmac order, which was shipped on monday and arrived on wednesday, from america. and still no sign, a week later, of the carbon rod from england. o dear o dear

Trisonics = Brian May.


So how do they sound? I've heard that they are fatter single coils, similar to P90s?

yeah they're kind of half way between single coil and p90, verging more towards p90. they're air coils with a bar magnet placed inside the coil after its been formed, rather than the wire being wrapped around pole magnets like most other pickups. thats why they sound so different.

they're kind of fat and smooth and creamy hehe

so basically, it'll be like a black tint in the middle fading to full black around the edges? Am i correct in guessing that in the middle, you'll still be able to see the grain?

not much done. cut the neck and headstock profile out, truss rod channel, glued in carbon rods (which FINALLY came) and cut out the control cavity and cover. did a bit of carving today the good old fashioned way with a rasp, a file and a spoke shave. takes a year longer than with an angle grinder, but a lot more satisfying

treble side is pretty much done but lots more of the bass side to do

speaking of which, i'm due to get the body of my first custom in august. IF i get it, and i decide to put in a contour at the heel, could i technically just sand it to fuck? (BY HAND!) i know it would take ages, but at least i can be slow and take my time about it.

You can sand to fuck, it does work! But the good old rasp is a great tool.
