If you are interested in this or change some things, let me see whats your end-product.
Step 1: Cut Everything Out and Get 2 Meters of an 6mm X 6mm Steelbar
Glue the puzzle parts together.
Step 2: Main Body
Take the long parts and put them together, there are some spacer called "end Piece", "under the pickup" and "after the neck" to keep the right space. Add the short steelbar in the gab at the part with the number "2" and "6".
Step 3: Headstock
there are two pieces for the headstock, the one with the tiny holes is on the bottom. for the mechanics there are spacer to get the right thickness.
Step 4: Neck Part
Take the long steelbar und the fret parts and get them on place.
Step 5: Body
use the letters. cross A with A, B with B, and so on. After this you can glue the pot-knob
Step 6: Frets
glue the frets in the space between of the 2 woodfrets-things. before this is happening, length them on right dimension.
Step 7: Hardware
check out a baking plan for this equipment and put the parts together. Then you can put the parts on place. Drill two holes in the parts called "unter the pickup", so that you can adjust the p90.
Step 8: Get Strings on It
tune your guitar more than just a few times, the wood is working with the tension. After this is working adjust the bridge as low that you have about 3mm heigh on the 12. fret.
