    Nitro Chip “Reinstallation”?

    I've done exactly this once in the past with reasonable success. The repair isn't flawless, but you have to be within about a foot of it to be able to pick it out.

    Gibson style double neck wiring

    Not sure if I can help. but a few things, where you have the yellow diamond labled "hot?", that is just the symbol for a resistor and just means the pickup. The ground symbol you have is correct. I really don't know what you mean by ground wrap. For the wiring diagram, you literally just...

    The Definitive Top Carve Thread

    Awesome work, and thanks for sharing! I've messed around with modeling the carve top using NX, but I don't have the CAM license for NX, so once I eventually build a CNC I will have to lean Fusion so this will be very helpful!

    Fat neck Les Paul build

    I think you are thinking of it backwards (i.e. thinking that the bridge location is set on the body prior to gluing in the neck). Typically, you glue the neck in with the fretboard already attached and fretted, then drill the bridge location for proper intonation based on the position of the neck.

    Learning about the benefits of a band saw and drum sander.

    I would also assume that he is talkin about a thickness sander, but I concur that a thickness sander is really not needed for guitar building. It would be nice to have one, but it's certainly not necessary. A spindle sander on the other hand is pretty much a necessity IMO.

    Neck-through LP, now it’s a scratch build

    I'd offer to send you one, but that would take a couple of days to get to you at a minimum, and of course the one from Tom would end up getting there as soon as I sent one!

    Chris, just curious where you picked up that spiral carbide template bit?

    NTD again. Benchtop jointer.

    I've also got the little porter cable jointer and it has worked well for me. I recently picked up the 8" cutech benchtop jointer with the spiral cutterhead, so I will be saying good bye to the porter cable.
