Hint #2: I love 80's Charvel style super Strats.
Hint #3: One of these guitars will donate organs to the other.
Ok, my guess: you are donating the "organs" from the SAS to the NF3. I say this because the NF, with the longer scale, is more of a strat platform. From there, you are adding either a Floyd or filling in the trem cavity and doing a hardtail. Might be wayyyy off....but that is my guess!
If you have any parts left over let me know, I haven't spray painted anything in days.
- Floyd Rose
- Switch pickup config to NF in the neck and 5909 in the bridge
- New pickguard
- Switch pickup config to NF in the neck and bridge
- Plug the middle pickup and holes left by existing HB route for neck and bridge pickups
- Refinish the body and neck
Middle pickup plug:
Oh man that is going to SING!!!!!
Nice!! This will be cool to watch!!
I love threads like this one. Will be interesting to see how the route for the neck pickup is managed.
I went to bed last night dreaming up a new PTC project. It's addictive.
I"m excited to see the NF3! Wow!
I have been most curious about installing the NF in the neck of the SAS. On a SASNF, since the pickup rout is not set as deep into the body, they had to have a little extra wood on the back. Like this:
So, what's the PTC going to do to allow the neck to be properly mounted with enough support, yet still fill in the gap on the front remaining from converting from a full size humbucker to a NF?
Floyd nut shelf routed:
Body routed for Floyd and bridge humbucker:
WOW! Those guys aren't wasting any time are they.
More! I Want More!
Awesomeness! Can't wait to see both of these! Jeez....I picked a bad time to go back to school....PRS's new offerings are amazing and have me GASing like crazy and these PTC jobs have me wanting to pick up "project" guitars! haha
