button in the F hole for coil tap or phase or something ?

Not your best work. Thats sat on the stand here next to my desk - but a close second ;) And I too love the surfboard truss rod cover!
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

I didn't consider how visible the switch would be...its a gibson style long switch (as noted from an SG harness) so its a bit obvious in the F hole.

Anyone have an opinion on the mini knobs? again driven by the harness and F-hole...full size ones sat too close.

O the joys of constant prototypes!

ah shit, yeah sorry, I wouldn't have mentioned it... spin it around a bit or paint it black maybe ;)

Not in love with mini knobs, like JB, I like them with a bit of girth, I prefer gibson speed knobs to the old top hat style.

painting it black is a good idea....to rotate it Id have to re do the harness soldering ...and soldering is not my strong point.

Ill give that a go.

I of course disagree. The best one is sitting next to my desk! :rofl:

well maybe not Paradise by the Dashboard light, but 1 minute with a black sharpie certainly made the switch less obvious!
