I don't know how much a quality contribution this may be, but I'd like to suggest you do some different tuning on the shorter neck. It really depends on what you intend to play on it, but if you were to tune it like a 5th or 7th higher than a standard guitar, you could play some nice jangly chords. I doubt that's really the intention with the esquier pickup setup on the shortscale side, but, that's just my two cents on it. Yours builds are just godly, Scatter. I would give my left arm to be able to build guitars like that... of course then I wouldn't be able to play... so, that's a pretty bad catch 22.

well I made this today for the double neck, the screws that came with this switch had such big heads that no matter how you attached it the knob would jam into the screw heads and pretty much made it a two way switch, but it's a four way, so I had to buy some flat head screws and grind them down to oval heads and all is good
