Thank you.

I wired the input jacks this morning. I use the chassis to hold the jacks still, so I can work freely. The method I use uses the leads of the 1M resistors to connect everything here. Learned that one during my tweed Deluxe build. Just have to make sure the resistor will be clear of the cable when inserted.

I also built a ground bus for the preamp section of the board this morning. It's a more modern system than the old school brass plate Fender used, and is far easier to install. Soldering to the plate or even the chassis takes a really powerful iron.

The part that will pass under the jacks has a piece of heat shrink insulation, just in case.
