Here's some of the stuff happening on your bass now.
First, the top laminate of 5A Quilted Maple:
I know it's hard to tell, but this is a gorgeous top. Quilted Maple looks less interesting after sanding, but once it's in the finish department, you'll see all the dimensional figure "pop."
The body and neck are assembled, ready to get the bookmatch to center top fit:
And the Fan peghead:

It's red now, and we're deciding on the control layout (don't mind the masking tape as scratch paper):
Here's the first idea for placement of controls:
It's going to be a tight fit anyway you place them, even with the larger Essence control cavity. We're able to push the volume knob over the edge of the lip and undercut the cavity on that edge. I'll make a more accurate representation after we discuss it some before we start drilling holes.

That control layout looks fine. I should certainly be able to grab the volume control when I need it.

Cool. I let James know about the conrol layout approval, and he'll be able to get the bass back in production.

Mica, looking at the control cavity, are we missing a switch? Two Q switches, the input jack, where's the neck LED switch?
I can only assume you put it on there someplace...
Let me know.
