    Sounds pretty good so far. Have to do a proper setup on it but I'm pretty happy with it. I have a slight feeling I have a high fret around fret 17 but I'll try and work that out soon. I appreciate the nice comments! So far I would say the only thing I would do different on the next one is spending more time sanding! Lol

    Control cavity was a little too crowded for my liking with the 9v battery for the active pups. Decided to put a battery box in the back. Anyway here is a shot from behind!

    I based my location more on the tools I had available to use, which was basically a basic dremel kit. Thought about the bottom but I figured I had more room for error on the back lol.
