^^it's very likely that braided wire from the pickup is hitting the input terminal of the volume control.
So here is the beast:
With body and neck from @caspercaster bridge pickup from @paulnb57 and generous donations of kit from each of them. Neck filtertron from @alegree together with various bits.
I'm still intending to put a 7.25 rosewood neck on it at some point and needs another go at setting it up but sounds brilliant and I wired it all myself from scratch which was a new experience. I can see why people buy pre-wired but I learned a lot.
Thanks to everyone for the considered wisdom and assistance!
Excellent post @CasperCaster
Looks great! Soo glad you didnt strip the body!
munckee said:Re the bridge saddles, I could tell they are wrong and I think the neck action needs amending. Do you think I just need to turn the saddles around or have I got the saddles in the wrong order, I struggled to find much about height and depth of brass saddles.
@lovestrat74 picture above shows what they should be like perfectly. I think you'll have to swap saddles around so that the E-A and b-e saddles are the same angle (low E and b closest to bridge on their respective saddles). The D-g is angled the other way as you can see in the picture. If I've sent the wrong saddlles let me know and I'll pop some others in the post
This needs a link...Plus, even tho’ the cap is not touching, get some insulation on there anyway!!!
3rd one down on the right side is likely your issue.
