I am at the point where I am assembling the electronics of the two hollow-bodies. The wenge top guitar will have a 5-position lever switch and the maple top guitar will have a 6-position rotary switch. I came up with the above schematic for the 6-position switch, giving me the following selections:
- neck with treble cut (adjustable through hidden pot)
- neck + bridge parallel
- neck + bridge parallel out of phase
- bridge with treble cut
The journey here has passed through several steps over the past couple of weeks.
Here, the alder solidbody is hanging to dry with the wenge top. I had to order new binding for the maple top, so it was a little delayed.
After binding, it too was oiled.
Here is a detail of the grounding of the bridges:
And a detail shot of the recessed bridge plates:
I have verified correct alignment and action of the three necks on each of the bodies.
And shielded control cavities:
Now I’m waiting for new bridges before final assembly. I still haven’t finished and fretted the new maple/carbon fiber neck, so there is some work remaining there as well.
