Hey Jabes, sorry to keep you waiting.  If you look at my blog up there,batch 2012, I did neck slots today. cheers mate :)

Cheers, but i started the same day as you...;) Cutting the slot for the neck wasn't too tricky.Now moved on to the neck and finished frets.

yesterday i drilled a hole for the jack and chopped out for the pup .

Nothing is fixed yet, this is where i got to today and now it's all apart again and it's ready for sorting out the electrix

dpdt on-on-on , vol and tone

got 500k pots and .47 caps- see how it works out , I measured the pup with the m/tester on the 20k ohm setting and it read 05.0 for one coil and 4.90 for the other --it means nothing to me but any comments appreciated....:)

Worked out great mate
