Finally finished this thing off.

I installed the brass ferrule bar to the back of the body. Now it has tonez for days!
The top switch is wired to the middle pickup for in/out of phase. Soon as it's engaged with either bridge or neck, you
get that classic quacky Jag sound.

That Dakota red looks soooo good, that even though I already own a Dakota Red Duo-Sonic and I don't even particularly like red, you have me gassing for a Dakota Red Mustang.

The Huntsman looks very nice and tidy! Lots of good decisions made in that design, I think!

Same!
I never used to dig red guitars at all. But there is something about this shade of red!

Some shots of the gutty works.
I went semi-genuine with the wiring and shielding.
