Strat Replica Shielding & Rewire

The owner of this gorgeous strat replica asked for a full shielding job and rewiring.

Very nice.

Yes, I have a thing for output jacks :).

Full aluminium foil shield for the pickguard.


Same goes for the tremolo cover.

Just finished trimming and reaming.


All prepped for rewiring.


Rewiring complete.


Added a ground lug from the volume pot that will be screwed onto the body cavity shielding. Once again, many thanks to YusTech for sharing this invaluable tip.
