    Well done! How did you do the wire tunnels? Long drill bit at an angle?

    Yup. I've got a 8 x 400mm auger bit.
    The channel from the battery compartment to the main control cavity was done with a normal 4mm bit, since it was such a short distance.

    Knobs are one volume per pickup I'm assuming?

    It is, yeah. I'm actually thinking of giving each pickup its own output jack a la Billy Sheehan. That way I can Distort the P only, but still have the blend of P and Soapboar for the clean portion of the tone. I mean when recording. Each pickup will have its own channel in the mixer. The P will be duplicated, one part distorted one part clean, and the bridge just clean.

    This is because the blend of both pickups doesn't sound very good distorted. And the P on its own doesn't sound great clean.

    As a result, at the moment I'm just using the P pickup only to get my typical Dug Pinnick rip-off tone, and only including the bridge pickup when there's a clean passage with no distortion (which is about 5% of the time, when there's a bit of slap going on, or just the very occasional clean part)
