Thursday 7th February ’08
on days like this the diary comes across as rather sparse.. the wiring of these beasties takes up a very large portion of both my working life and my sanity..
first off I have to replace a damaged pickup, the reason the first bout of wiring ultimately failed..
and then I sift through all of this to re-wire the neccessary bits.. unfortunately most of it!
come mid-afternoon I’m done with the electrickery and take Jasper to meet his new girlfriend..
in six months or so they’ll be busy making a litter of pups!…
needless to say when I left the boys were not too excited about going home..
the backplate for this RF Hollow is cut out
filed to fit
and installed.. dusty, but she still reflects the tool rack!
the jack and 13-pin sockets are screwed in place along with strap buttons etc etc
and the last little bit of building work is the making and engraving of the truss rod cover..
which comes out rather well.. the serial number is on here..
and she goes on the wall ready for a final set-up tomorrow!
All my best,
