Do I need to connect all the cavities together? And how? Do I solder a wire to each?

No, just the shielding should do. Nice job.

Edit: I think you can put a ground wire from a pot to the body cavity, and a ground from one cavity to the other. In other words, double check. Sorry.

I think Silimtao's edited comment is the correct one...you need more than just the shielding.

Before I start soldering... do I need to change to new wires? I'm feeling lazy...

I edited and re-arranged the track by the way.

Good demo. I learn a lot from your vids. I subscribed. Nice catch with the LP

Ok! Here she is! Buffed frets, oiled the fretboards, but I can't get to make the matte black shine!




rail blades on bridge
P94 style P90 on neck
Roller bridge
No-load tone pot
Strap locks
Used Ernie Ball 7-string set but took out the 46 and saving it for my tele.

I am loving the P90 tone! It is my first time to try one and it really does sound different!

The roller bridge is just amazing! Fill told me that it will make my 10s feel like 9s... and this is so true! It has Ernie Ball 10s but jas 56 on the 6th string as this will be a dedicated Drop D tuned guitar.

Next break, I will record a comparo before mods vs after mods and post it soon!

Thank you everyone for your advice and following. Thank you Fill!

The rails humbucker bridge wasn't what I was expecting for a high output. I probably need to dial in a tone for it. Or, maybe I'll get a cheapo high output in the future.

She is really quiet! I guess the effort in shielding really paid off! I got the toggle switch reversed though... Dangit... Top goes to bridge and down goes to neck.
