    NMJGD: New Modded Jackson Guitar Day

    I have been sitting on this project for months and I finally got the time to do it.

    I started with this guitar:

    I look out the horrid Nazgul pickup and promptly sold it with the matching, but not horrid Sentient neck pickup.

    I added Full Shreds for max br00tz bruh (no pic unfortunately )

    Then I got the idea that I needed an HSH 7 string. That led me to doing this:

    The black button in place of the toggle is a kill switch that isnt wired currently. I also have black mini toggles on order.

    The middle pickup is a Seymour Duncan SSL 5-7 RWRP. This thing sings!

    I was able to use a buddy's CNC to carve all the added switches but I had to do the relief cuts in the cavity by hand. The mini toggles are almost sunk full depth. I used a 5/8" brad point after drilling the pilot holes to counter sink them into the cavity. I used a 3/4" very sharp chisel to provide the relief for the super 5 way.

    Some Close ups of the insane wiring I did. This allows me get Strat, Tele, and Humbucker tones from one guitar.

    The super switch is wired like this:
    1. Bridge
    2. Bridge outside coil + Middle
    3. Bridge + Neck
    4. Neck outside coil + Middle
    5. Neck

    The mini toggles are coil taps for the neck and bridge in positions 1, 3, and 5.

    The push/pull on the tone changes position 3 from B+N to just the middle pickup.

    This was a lot of fun and I will be doing it again shortly.

    Well, that's an insane wiring cavity. Very clean routing, too.

    That guitar with HSH looks so much more appealing than the original HH variant! Good work!!!!!

    Are you going to use the same pickups in the blue one?
