New wiring for this guy courtesy of a kit from Tone shapers. CTS pots, switchcraft jack and switch (not used), orange drops (if you care), and treble bleeds. It even comes with a choice of braided wire or shielded 4 wire.

Good stuff and $80 for the kit (shipped off Amazon au) is a good rate for name brand parts

Awesome. What's it cost to 3D print an object like this?

Maybe a dollar worth of plastic? Plus my labour for the 4 minutes it took to knock up the 3d model :lol:

Actually did the same this arvo. Should be up tonight. Don't think I bother to paint it...
When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

Just a cheap Mosky DOD clone. I notoriously hate OD pedals, so I didn't want to spend much to try out a DOD. Turns out it sounds brilliant, but it needed a new coat of paint to look good enough for the pedalboard.

The Mosky stuff is seriously great, I had their spring reverb pedal and have their EP Booster, bloody great!

I'm learning how to solder for the second time. The first time I just gave up.

I've hooked up (I think) my neck tone knob to my bridge pickup. I'm glad in learning this on my $359 Artist Strat clone.

I will work on shielding the guitar cavities tomorrow with aluminium tape. Hopefully that cuts down a lot of the EMI.

hooking the neck tone to the bridge pickup and shielding was a success! wow, what a difference shielding makes to reducing noise. It's like a new guitar now! it has definitely lessened my GAS for a new ST-style guitar.
