    Siegler makes the wiring so easy. A proper jack plate?

    Sure will - I've used em before with good results, hoping for the same outcome this time.

    I've started another thread about that, thinking about making one from a coin

    Sorry about that, yes thankful its just the guitar.

    Looks like they'll be a few nice upgrades. I'll look forward to seeing the progress, and/or completion.

    Oh boy!

    Breathe deep and make sure you eat something before doing any drilling.:)

    I'll be measuring once and cutting twice j/k :)

    920D Custom sent some as part of the kit, I'll double check before installation and order different ones if needed - is there a preferred source I should use if I need to order some?

    Looks like those pots are split shaft? Check to make sure your knobs fit properly.

    Best wishes for a swift recovery for the patient. I’m sure he’ll be sounding chipper and sparkly soon.

    How are you expecting the Setzers to sound compared to TVJ Classics?

    First thing I checked - good catch!

    Thanks! From my experience they have more "bite" which I like - but I dig the classics too.
