I drilled and chopped out the wire passages for the pickups then glued the beast to the neck with Titebond III.

Wire routes.

It will weigh about 7#.

I should be able to trim some weight as I shape it.

Before gluing I cutout the body at the bandsaw with a 1/4” blade. I used the scrap as caul and I also had to put some tape on the top of the body to level it with the neck. The glue-up was done face down on a board and tapped into into alignment against the board while tightening the clamps.

Looks like the plan. So far no serious mistakes.

Should be fun for him to play!
