Thank you, Order99.

 Thank you Doug. You certainly know your way around the chuggers and make them sing. I've learnedmore than a little from you.

 Thank you Uncle John! I wasn't going to use the Red Oak for a neck, but the stuff is gorgeous! Thought I'd do an experiment. So right now, it's possibly either a chugger or a destructive testing rig of a chugger. (Oops, aerospace speak came out) We'll see if it holds up to light strings...

Very pretty wood tone and a good match with that Padron box and pickup.

Lookin’ good Southern Ray! Chuggers are my CBG of choice; fun and easy to play.

 I use wall-wart wire. Usually .004-008 gets me 300-800 or so winds. bought a little 36, 42 and 43 from Remington that I haven't tried yet. The pickups aren't very loud without a buffer or boost of some sort but they seem cleeeeeaaan with pure tone.

Looks great. What type of wire do you use for your pickup windings?
