@tv101 I recognise those inserts!!

I had those tucked safely away in my "might come in handy one day" cupboard!

Didn't end up using them (dimensions weren't quite right), but they were the inspiration for what I eventually used.

Good to see you Darren.

Just finished grain filling and final sanding. As I start to hang it for sanding sealer, I drop the body gauging it bad. Really? Swamp ash, hard as hell damaged that much. Unreal. Good news is that it could be contoured and sanded with just enough room not to disturb the pickguard screw holes but man, such a bummer. Sometimes in life you just gotta laugh about it.

@clinton Yikes! Luckily it is fixable , but I feel your initial frustration. I've been there too often 🙂

@clinton - that looks BAD - you've done well to save it.

 

That's what I like so much about guitar building - every build seems to throw up an unexpected opportunity to learn something new - aka fix a feck-up.

@tv101 saved it. Rasped a contour shape and sanded. Looks good now. Not much of a big deal as I thought it would.

So you could use a recessed jack then claim the notch is because you use a 90 degree cable that connects to your wireless rig attached to your strap.

Art is art, you decide what something is and why it’s there. 😁

Looking quite beautiful thus far btw.

Thanks @rathius.

This one has been on pause while I tried to get to the end of my working year, and progressed the other build.

Almost finished the messy work on the other build now, so will be able to clean up the workshop and get time to put this one together.

I’m using piezo saddles and a Graphtech system, so the wiring will be a little more complex than usual … and the wiring usually takes me a few attempts to get working as intended.

Thats a good save @clinton.  It looked pretty nasty in the photo.  I guess, unless you’re building a faithful re-creation of a well-known design, then most aspects of a build can be flexed to respond to the unintended design deviation.

😉

 

And I should know ….
