Scott Blackham-Hayler - SBH Guitars - Kit Build
I caught the bug of all things guitar building and maintenance after bringing my own guitars back to life. All it took was a set of Seymour Duncan Blackouts and an EMG Solderless conversion kit.

Here are some more photos of what I have been up to.

Well after test routing on the practice body I made before GGBO last year it was time to route the Floyd Rose cavities onto my build. The front block hole perfect, rear cavity perfect, recessed front cavity perfect but the mounting stud holes... not so perfect.
I got the high E side in the correct place but the low E side was off by about 3-4mm, which would mean the string would be complete off the neck and render the guitar unplayable. So I plugged it, went to drill it again in the correct place and because of the soft dowel I used it went straight back in the same place. Rather than doing the same thing and expect a different result I decided to plug the front of the cavity and pretty much start again, the videos of which are on my socials.

I got the pickup cavities routed and the channel I routed in the body before adding the top worked as planned so I could get the pickguard made and do a test install of the pickups. I'm using a signature Alexi Laiho EMG Pickup in the bridge paired with their passive S3 single coil for the neck.
