That thing looks beautiful. Hows the action? Did you have to shim the neck because of the change in stringangle from the Bigsby?
i did. ill be completely honest, as cool as the Dan Auerbach H47 is, doing the customization is a pain in the ass granted, the finished product is totally worth it, but you really have to jump through hoops to get there.

The guitar is looking great!
I'm working to put a rotary switch on a tele I have, would you mind directing me somewhere I can figure out the number of poles and throws I need? What did you use for your switch? Does it change between neck/both/bridge? I have a mini-hum on the neck and was looking to wire neck/neck split/both/bridge single coil.
i decided to use a 4 way rotary switch. ideally, i wouldve used a 3 way, but you know how that goes.
like i mentioned earlier, it really was a fluke of luck that i found someone else's wiring diagram because rotary switches confuse the HELL outta me.
4-way rotary swich
the positions for my H47 are 1-neck 2-neck+bridge in series 3-neck+bridge in parallel 4-bridge.
tonally speaking, series wiring gives you a boomy, humbucker like tone, parallel gives the opposite-a single coil tone.
like i said i really would have ideally worked with an original 3 way rotary switch and done the standard neck/bridge/both wiring, but the two extra positions are fun too.
misa-as far as looking for extra assistance with your wiring, i would join that forum in the link i provided and ask some of the guru's there.
TBH, i am skilled in the gruntwork of guitars, the building,fixing and shaping, still not TOO familiar with the universe of guitar wiring.
Now baby when I roll, I roll deep;
so much soul, I couldn't get much sleep.
