So I trimmed up the wedges and rough sanded the neck body join. I am happy with the way it went together. I sourced some vintage correct long bushings and tailpiece as well as drilled ground wire into the control cavity. I thought the bushings maybe too tight in the holes but they pressed in quite well with my drill press. Tailpiece slid on perfectly. I have to source a bridge and I'll be able to get the intonation done. Ideally I want to have the PUPs, rings, bridge, and pickguard all roughly placed together before drilling any holes. This guitar is a challenge with all the pieces that have to line up together. The treble bridge stud goes through the pickguard and the thumb wheel sits above on one side. I'm sneaking up on completion of this guitar, which is great. Cheers Peter.
