hmmmm.... build the cavity with room for additional switches and pots... and where to puut the pots. while this is probably off the topic of this fourm, it's all in context. because this is a custom build, i dont see the need for it to clone the way a strat looks what so ever. i'm already planning on a 3 switch layout to offer all possible pickup combinations. the question that remains is the wiring, stick with the traditional 1 vol 2 tone, or perhaps a master volume, with a second volume control attached to the neck or bridge, maybe a 1 volume 3 tone layout(that seems a touch overkill). or even worse.. 2 tones with 2 master volumes controlled by a switch, lead-rhythm switch any1? i'ma go do some more diagram digging for ideas, but i thought i'd put that there incase anyone has some nifty wiring scheme. Cheers hmm, l280's and a pg4-TB bridge?
