Hello and welcome to this week's article!
After the body has been painted and sealed with tru oil, it was time to start assembling the kit.
I have mounted with ease the six tuners provided, using a screwdriver to secure it to the headstock.




Then I have aligned the neck on the body and I have fixed it with the screws and the metal plate (yes, it is a bolt on Sg :D)




After the neck was firmly in place, I have started the isolation process using aluminum duct tape, cutting it with scissors and adapting it to all the electronic cavities as good as possible, in order to isolate the pickups from unwanted electromagnetic sources.



I have also isolated the cavity for volume and tone knobs and the plastic cover.



As you can see those red plastic plugs means the pickups are solderless: I just had to attach them to the pickup wire to make them work.


After the shielding operations I proceeded to put the knobs and the pickup selector into place, tightening them with a bolt.


Then I have installed the pickups with their plastic frame.
