Do you not like to extend the shielding up onto the lip to assure contact all around with the cover thus forming the faraday cage?
You just need a couple points of contact. I just haven't got to that point yet. Yes, it is on the TODO list.

This is coming together very nicely, gentlemen! Another vote for the industrial look, or send out for type III hardcoat anodize; paint will wear faster than anything else, and detract from the look of the guitar.

Check out dynamiccustomchrome.com local to you, in Wayne County.

PS: they can do blue, but anodizing is hard to match perfectly and will have the metallic sheen no matter what. Powder coat might be an option as well if it becomes an OCD point.

Looks nice so far. I am not usually one to comment on knobs, but that one stands out.
I don't usually find a use for this smiley :flipa , but I like so there you have it.

I think the knob looks even cooler in person. It is crazy how much it matches the color of the guitar. It also matches the inlay perfectly. I am waiting for an output jack to wire this thing up. I have a few life challenges and obligations to deal with this week. It will side track me for a moment. I will try to get back on this build ASAP. So stay tuned everyone.
