11. Position the components, roughly as they’re going to be inside the guitar, making sure none of the wiring is tangled or snagged. Then, attach the bits of dangling thread that are coming out through the f-holes to the relevant pot or switch and tie them on tight to enable you to pull them back into position in a minute.
But first, test everything again to be on the safe side.
12. Next we’re going to reverse the process of taking the components out. Starting with the furthest component from the f-hole when positioned, carefully put the wiring loom, one component at a time, back inside the guitar through the f-hole. Gently pull the components towards their relevant locating holes, taking care not to stress any wires.
Then ease the components into position in the guitar and reattach their washers and lock nuts - finger tight at this stage is fine. A hook or a bit of bendy coat hanger can be a big help, as can an extra pair of hands!
