Bad news I attached the jack before realising the wires needed threading through the body first. Doh, first boob so far.

If I had a fiver for every time I've spent ages soldering up a multipin plug only to realise the cover is still sitting on the bench, or even worse part of the cable clamp, I'd have been able to retire earlier!

It's looking good.
Guitars - Ovation Celebrity, Revelation RJT60Q.

Finally the last few steps.

Shielding completed though maybe unnecessary.




After replacing the jack plug leads again and lacing them through, then putting the scratch plate rig back in position, I found the height adjusters for the HB pups were too long.



Some tentative hand drilling for the HB pup screws .......



And everything slotted nicely into place .............. although back plate and scratch holes where slightly off, so the bradl came out.





So just a case of resoldering the jack plug leads.



And then restringing.



And a well earned beer

So after nearly 22 years of ownership there's life in the old dog. HB sound great and the split coils and may just need some height adjustments. Middle pup sounding a bit weak but maybe just over awed but as my first wiring project I'm pretty made up - surprised it plays - but made up all the same.

So after messing around for what seems an eternity but likely two weeks, its time to get back to playing.

Big thanks to TB-AV and Dan Graves. Without their input and advice this project would probably never got off the ground. Cheers guys!

Well everything is now cooking on gas !!

The Hammerhead HBs are hammering and the Smoke Stack II is now smoking hot.

After much thinking about the lack of SSII volume, I sacrificed the new strings to check connections again and found the ground had disconnected. Re-soldered to the volume pot, put everything back together and checked out with a spare Super Slinky 42 - and the mid pup was screaming like a stuck pigs. Relaced a full set of strings and set all three pups to about 4mm.

Sounding good and ready for Justin's latest ACDC lessons. Cushty  8)

Good for you, Toby ... have enjoyed following the story.

As Lieven says ... now for some sounds to go with the words and pictures.

BTW, I'm not seeing the final set of pictures.  No idea if that is my local issue or something general.  Would appreciate if other confirm the pictures are visible or not.

Thx Lieven / David / Close

Yes I'll get some sound bites out once I get back into the swing of things. Just a bit rusty, what with working on this project and a few other things ticking away in the background. But looking forward to applying MTMS and Blues Rhythm modules with the "new" toy. Will most like record a few  "comfortable" tracks for your delight (?), the ones that just fall under the fingers.

Watch this space. NGD ? OGD !

Cheers

Toby
