Getting closer to finishing this.





A few progress photos.












And now I'm trying to sort out a bridge for the Electric VIII ukulele build.

Killer. Are you gotta do the built in effects?

Thanks,
No, it's pretty much just a strat in vox clothing made from parts I already had. The three piece alder body is from scraps and I made the pickup surrounds from leftover pieces of pickguard.
Wiring is not my forte so just wiring it up like a strat is going to be a challenge.

That is so cool. What are those pickups, Vox, Phantom Guitar Works, other? Did you make the back plate? What is that metal plate?

Thanks! The pickups are GFS 60's-70's Grey Bottoms with a set of covers from Phantom Guitar Works. The switch plate is from Phantom as well. I ordered one of their pickup surrounds
and made a template from it. I did make the back plate and the metal control plate is actually for a bass. I think I got it on ebay.

I originally was making a hollowbody with a walnut back but I had a major router tearout so that body wound up being a mandocaster and the teardrop became a solidbody with a faux f hole.

Thanks!
I put the tuners on and mounted the neck this evening. I had to order some smaller parts to finish.

Not sure but I think the Revelation necks are a longer scale than the Vintage Vox ones.

The Revelation is a 25.5" scale. Not sure what the original Vox version is. Mine looks really long next to the shortscales on the wall.
