@cheesewhisk Hey Drill Sergeant, how are you feeling about things today? Must better I bet? 

It’s gonna look superb this guitar, I can’t wait to see what hardware and pickups you put on/in it. 

Keep going. 

Rock n Roll. 🤘😜🤘🎸

Feeling like I don't know what all the fuss was about 🤣 🤣 

 

Actually feeling surprised no one mentioned this near miss.

 

Hardware and pickups are all gold on this one, can't wait to get them all fitted.

holes everywhere

@cheesewhisk   No one would have noticed, slap some graphite shielding paint over it.

@cheesewhisk No, stuff like that happens a lot, it doesn’t matter.

Very nice choice, you’re getting nearer. Don’t rush though, stay frosty.

To come back to this, I checked the intonation and it's literally perfect. 'Drill through the entire guitar' 10/10 would do again.

@cheesewhisk someone bought me a set of these after I drilled through on another non guitar project courtesy of slipping flag, use them for any job on nice wood if a hand drill is involved! https://www.axminstertools.com/axminster-8-piece-drill-stop-collar-guide-set-507150

…on an elaborate journey to turn trees into music.
