Hopefully sometime we can see this fiddle after it's refinished.
I'm wondering if you've measured the scale length of this guitar and if so what would it be ?Bore for Klusons

Inlay the Gibson MOP and fill with black resin.

When you plug the larger humbucker routes there will be about 1/8" of wood in front and behind the plug , then the glue line. These are end grain to end grain and in a year or 2 when the lacquer shrinks the glue line will telegraph thru...guaranteed. Doing it this way The only glue lines showing are on the left and right of the pickup and these joints are going with the grain and have a less chance of telegraphing thru.Looks great!!
Out of curiosity, what is the benefit of the secondary route (between the neck pickup and bridge) verses just plugging the old humbucker routes and rerouting for P90's?
The owner will probably play it a while and then make up his mind if he wants to refret or not. Sorry I've never been asked to refret a "fretless wonder" and I don't have that info. No worries on the flogging. After 20 years of getting flogged, casterated and you name, it I've grown some pretty thick skin.Are you going to refret? If so what wire are you going to use?
Do you know if anyone makes correct dimension "fretless wonder" wire?
Just went to your website and saw some your conversions. Sorry about the flogging comment ... still mean it, but it doesn't apply to you?
