Wow

Looks very nice! I love the in construction pictures too, I like seeing it all come together.

Haven't looked through all the photos yet, but was masking tape all that was used to glue the aluminum to the sides? Also, what glue did you use for the aluminum?

very impressive work.

Just out of interest, what are you using the three smaller knobs for? Obviously one will be tone, and Im assuming another is piezo blend? But what about the third...

Also I didn't know allparts sold bloody HAP Gotoh tuners... I bought a set of the non HAP ones from mansons for eighty fucking quid...

just masking tape, and i used a glue called Gorilla glue, i think its water-based as it has no smell

It looks like he was going for a spot on replica though, but it does look better without

musecasters, are you going to relic this one a bit so it looks like Matt's currently does, or leave it like it is?

Seeing as...



I like how it looks now actually - the aluminum doesn't look too shiny, but not too dull...

Sorry, I meant the delorean you just built I was wondering if you were going to leave it as is or relic it a little:



And that looks cool, just as long as you leave the labels off haha

Where did you get the spoke nut truss rod attachment? The spoke nut hotrods from Stewmac are absolutely useless in that the spoke nut doesnt actually come off (despite the fact the instructions make out it needs to come off), the substance used to weld the spoke on in some cases spreads too far down the thread meaning you cant tighten it too far, and in one case, the nut was actually on at a slight angle...

an engineer mate made it for me, but it's just for show, one twist and it'll break the glue
