@deej I didn’t manage to get any guitar work done today unfortunately, I’ll sort it out tomorrow. Life got on the way.

@deej I want to get it all done and have strings on it tomorrow. I am curious to see if I can play any chords left handed, it will be like learning to play from scratch again.

@johnnierox-boo  Have you lined the humbucker cavities with copper foil, or is that the colour of the wood. I haven't reached that stage, but I thought I'd only be lining the control cavity.

That's a good observation @robin.

I've never bothered shielding my self-builds, on the basis that, if Mark doesn't see the need, then I'm not sure there's a need.

I guess it'll depend in part on where you're playing - ie what the risk is of external interference - but I've never found it a real issue.

Perhaps a new discussion on "to shield or not to shield"?

@robin Yes, it is copper foil tape. @tv1010101 has just made a separate thread on this topic so look for “To shield or not to shield” for my explanation.

I wish @johnnierox-boo , it’s one of my friends who actually plays that way..no kidding. He used to watch his day play and mirrored while he watch. He can’t play it normally.

The guitar is one of my builds going through my Kemper

I got the wiring done today and got through it without having to take a break to go and smash something up. Everything went well, with no buzzing or humming, I’m happy. I put everything together and all I need to do now is a setup and make a control cavity cover, which I forgot about to be honest. I’ll get some better pictures tomorrow in the daylight.

Previous images/pictures still don’t seem to be available so I’ll try some new ones.

New images upload super quick. Huge improvement with the speed, I’m impressed. I just hope all the old images can be recovered. If not, we soldier on and start adding new ones. We will not be defeated.
