Oh dear... looks like this body is a used then,
but no matter, as i wasn't expecting it to be in any good state, the bits I really wanted were:
A UV7BK neck! I had one ages ago that I wanted to use for what I have in mind, but had to sell it, so it's kind of like coming full circle!
And a bridge (albeit one that most people think is really near to death)
And then, time for a quick assemly with no screws:
And a lengthways shot:
At the moment I've bolted the neck on, put the tuners on, and attached the trem with springs to the body. Tomorrow or the day after I am going to wire the pickup to the output jack (it's a blaze custom with a metal base plate which is quite cool) and see how it plays, then decide upon my plan of attack.
So far, however, the neck looks all good
However, I have no scratchplate, so mounting rhe pickup should be, er, well, interesting...
And I know it's in a bad state, but I was warned about it being in such a state, and as such don't mind, as long as the neck is good, my plan can come to fruition! Now what that plan is, however, is for me to know and others to find out!
