Build Diary #3: Shopping, part I

Wood’s certainly not everything. For any electric guitar some additional parts are needed so I finally went shopping ๐Ÿ™‚

“Went shopping” is obviously an exaggeration because I bought everything online but to my surprise – searching for the parts was much more fun than I expected.

There’s more to be bought but some basic stuff is already here. So far I got Wilkinson P90 pickups (which I’ll write about in a separate post), 500k pots for volume and tone, a Gibson-style three way switch with a nice ivory-colored switch plate, some wires and self-adhesive copper tape for pickups’ and electronics’ cavity shielding and those famous 0,022ยตF Orange Drops (Orange capacitors).

Not that Orange Caps are better than regular ones. They just look “vintage” and… I like orange color ๐Ÿ™‚ More “goods” coming soon!
