    I agree with FJK that battery is definitely a good spot to start. I'm not super knowledgeable with golden harvest. I know that with plecter labs, you have to define the blade in the soundboard...

    That's a hard one to do really successfully if you don't have the machinery like lathes to do proper adjustments to the parts. I find it is easier to keep a pommel and drill your own holes in it...

    If the orientation of picture you have is accurate(meaning the bat- pin is in the foreground), the recharge port is wired up incorrect. The pins should read, battery pack+/board+, battery-, and then...
