Of course it is freezing and sleeting outside... what an ugly December.
Making a cover for an 8 string single coil that matches an EMG-40 takes a couple of tries. I made the prototype out of Padauk. This would be easier with a mill. First thing was a template for the cavity and test it.
Make the baseplate for the SC so it can be used without a cover if necessary.
Ok so the test cover is made and it fits. Also looks like it matches the EMG-40 pretty close. I still need to round all the edges but you get the idea.
On to the ebony... After several blow outs finally get a good slot cut.
Last look at the base plate.
