Hey all, just a quick little sign of life. I wasn't eaten by sharks, the project is still happening, all is well.
Many thanks for your attention, all your comments are much appreciated :)

Thing is, the real world & life with a young kid plus the current COVID thing (and a gazillion other cool projects) have my attention, so there hasn't been much progress. The other week I was able to work on the electronics, and I did some pretty wild MacGyver style DIY pickup winding - you'll love it when you'll get to see it. I will share some more cool progress soon, but give me time - I'm on it.

Until then, I hope all of you are well in these weird times. Peace :-*

Cool project! I’m glad you checked on so I can follow this restoration. Nice job especially on those pickup covers. The hours of sanding... :derp:

Still super busy, but it's on the list. The weather is getting better, so I'm getting ready to spray some lacquer soon. It will be happening!

Amazing work man. Can't wait to see it finished.

For the pickguard if the screws are enough to hold it together I would just leave it unglued.
