Ok, I think I've got this figured out...Just finished up my Strat mod and I'm going to try to post some pictures.
I recently got a custom guitar from Chris Michas. I'm really enjoying that guitar but my old Strat just didn't cut it any more. So I decided to mod it to put it more in line with the Michas. I bought it back in about '87...the frets were worn and I'd always wanted a rosewood or ebony fretboard...so I got a new neck from Warmoth. My Michas has got two Super II's and an SDS1 in the neck...no sense making an exact copy of what I already had so I went with 3 Super II's...some photos...
Back Cavity...I blocked the bridge and took the springs out...that gave us room for the buffer. We had to rout-out that cavity just a little bit to give us the depth we needed.
Dual Jacks...We abandoned the old jack and put 2 jacks in the edge of the body. My brother is kind of an anal wood worker...he felt it was necessary to recess the jack plates. I was glad he did after the fact.
YIKES!!!! The wiring was a major endeavour. After it was all done, we had a bad connection somewhere...it took quite some time to get it all working.
All Done...the cover on the old jack is temporary...I really love the bolt...It's all over my guitar from Michas...but were thinking we might need to make our own logo...building one from scratch is in our future!!!
My brother and I had never done anything like this before...what a daunting task. Waldo...I can never thank you enough!!! To everyone else out there...Mike is an amazing guy...when you buy his buffer you get the whole package...I can't tell you how much help he was. A lot of fun and a lot of headaches. I've played it a bit today...and should be playing quite a bit tomorrow...It ain't as good as my Michas...but I now have a reasonable substitute...and that's exactly what I wanted.
