DIY Strat – The Return of the Legend Part 5: A slight change of direction and a bit of Photoshopping

I had mentioned in Part 2 that I would include a Tone Switch in the wiring scheme for the Legend, effectively being able to switch in a capacitor in addition to the tone pot – this method, is apparently, not the best way and I’ve been pointed to this thread on Guitar Nuts, which allows selection of capacitor on the tone pot. A much more sensible option.

Since I’ve stripped the body back to bare wood, and until I can locate some sander sealer locally, I’m a bit stuck with the project – so instead I’ve Photoshopped what I hope the final guitar will look like.
