    It's a place to put the button to press so you're able to do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.

    It's for the routing machine (I forget what it's called) to hold the body while it does its thing. Might serves as a reference point for the machine, as well.

    Esquire players would also ask what that routed hole just below the neck pocket is for! ;)
    BTW.... there are no stupid questions, (well only a few) but there are LOTS of stupid answers. (like mine)

    Not a "CNC reference hole" as so easily spread across the forums.

    Factory identification "mark" you could say...............so body's don't get mixed up. You'll find different MIM bodies, with one or some have three holes.

    Also surly not like Gibson.............. for weight relief :lol:

    They do vary on identical models made in the same year. Could be due to the requirements of individual routing machines.
    These are 2 Mex Standard HSH Strat bodies made in 2017.

    I would just like to know what the torque setting is for that hole. ;)
