J-5 body design

after originally designing a single cutaway I've decided to do a double cutaway. Will be glad to provide the schematics if anyone is interested.

custom guitar (25) electronics

Pictures of the proposed layout for the vol/tone/tone with the HSH pickups. Both tone controls are push/pull for coil splitting and/or serial parallel wiring.

Also shown is where I think the 1/4" mono plug would stick into the cavity.
