This instrument has to be completed by Monday and so it was back to the woodshed for Matthew and me. We continue to add coats to the guitar neck however the main task today was to finish the guitar body.
There are several components to the body: pickguard, pickups, controls, strap posts, output jack. Matthew installed the two strap posts and then we both worked on the other parts. I elected to do the soldering work myself as that can be a bit challenging to a novice.
Here is the body with the masking tape in place for marking the pickguard drill holes.
Matthew secures the bridge.
Lots of drilling, wiring, soldering and we finally get to this point: a finished guitar body. Tomorrow we will finish and attach the guitar neck.
