I just installed the copper shielding, volume pot (no tone, never use anyways), and the jack. Waiting to install my new EVH Frankie pickup.

Here is my new neck (Mighty Mite) as I save up for my $450 warmoth neck. Once I buy my warmoth, I'll install the MM on my cheap squire strat. I'm waiting for my Orig Chrome Floyd to show up from warmoth. $170, great price!! I'm in the process of installing my new EVH frankie pickup. Going to mount solid to the bodie (without ring).
