Got it in today, soldered on the connects to my pickups. I had to use a reamer to enlarge the holes for the pots to fit. that went pretty well, though the reamer left a few small chips in the edges of the paint, I think I pressed to hard maybe. they are minute and covered by the washers/knobs so who fuckin cares right. No one knows but me...and you guys now.
It's in and working, sounds great. Had to clean the tone pots, they were fine at first, then got all scratchy feeling.
I'm done tone chasing for awhile.
