No, it's just a collection of parts from over the years!
The body is 15 or so years old and been rebuilt several times (Originally from Brandoni's in London, I think!!). Same with the neck. All the other parts are new and from various sources!

you HAVE to play some metal on that once its finished i mean its pink lol..

I have a feeling that it will entice me back to my youth of playing Crue, Ratt and other West Coast Hair Metal!!!! tongue.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

Wow, that`s such an 80`s glam guitar, me want biggrin.gif

Will your wiki contain every detail required to build/put together a guitar, or will it have some shortcuts which required some knowledge on the subject?

It's going to be a pretty basic step-by-step guide!
If I happen to miss anything then it's unintentional but I'll have no problems with doing a Q&A in the forums afterward too!
I am assuming that anyone who wants to have a go themselves will have a little bit of soldering knowledge and can use a screwdriver and a spanner! That's it on the 'assembly' side. Then there's the 'Set-up' which I will probably do as a separate article.

Jones,

Looking good but a little too....ummm.....pink....for me. :-) Though yes, it does have that 80's glam going on.

Couple of questions.

What's the black piece behind the red screwdriver box? Is that shielding material?

Why are there two neckplates? Is it one for each side of the neck joint cavity?

Cheers.

Hey Rob!
Yeah, that's self-adhesive Copper Sheet, you'll see it better in the full write up. biggrin.gif
As for the neck plates thing, the ones I use are a metal plate as per normal but it has a shallow Plastic tray that it sits in. It's basically to stop the metal plate digging into the body and stops any marks and indentations.
