Hi Scott,

We're just about ready to drill the holes for the control on your guitar. Here's my first idea for where to locate things:


and with the labels removed to get another look at things:

Note, I snatched your guitar mid-prep sanding for the next coat of finish, so don't worry about the hazy look of things here.

I tried a long string of the 5 switches and didn't really like it. I split them up to the pickup functions in one row, a little more tightly spaced and the Q switch by the filter in its logical location. The LED switch is out on the end since it's not for changing sound.

Let me know if this looks OK or if you have any other concerns or ideas. We can talk on the phone while looking at these photos if it helps.

Excellent! Then we shall drill.

Note that the spacing on the real thing will be measured and not the quick by-eye version I showed above. It will only look better than the plan, I promise.
