    Hit a little roadblock deciding how I want to direct-mount the pickups. I made a separate thread about it here. I see a few ideas of what I should do on other forums, but no perfect solutions yet.

    I prefer 24.75" scale length (Godin Exit 22, Gibson Les Paul, Peavey Vandenberg) so I bet your project will be killer. That Velocity body is killer too. Nice project, waiting for the final pics.

    Thanks! I didn't really specify the power of the Seths. I told MJ that I wanted them 4 conductor, and I was going to use them split sometimes, so that is probably why she upped the power. I hope to install them later this week.

    Haha! I figured- it is pretty different than any of your designs. So far, it is coming along just great. This is Karma trying to help but definitely not helping.

    I am curious how the Velocity turns out in this build.
    Been thinking about building a "sleek and fast" T-style Warmoth and the Velocity seems to fit that description but I don't see it very often in the wild.

    Keep us posted of progress!

    Here is the shielding work (I put Schaller S Locks on, but I didn't take a pic of those).

    This is before I covered the little shelf for the screws.

    Not the pickup cavities, since you would see them- the pickups will be wood mounted, and I don't want copper shining through. If there is a big problem with noise, I might get black shielding paint and paint the cavities.

    I agree. And how apropos that the lettering on the box almost looks like "Seth Loner."

    Cool project, Dave.

    Thank you! I was going for wildly different wood types. The satin finish feels wonderful too.
