    You may as well put Sadowsky electronics in it anyway, because he gets all his bodies and necks from Warmoth.

    Cue the flames!;)

    If Sadowsky did go with Warmoth it wouldn't surprise me at all. There are a lot of builders like K-line who are more of an "assembly and fine finishing" vs. total construction. There's something to be said for delegation.

    Yep, it's similar. I looked at the redwood/alder combo too.

    Last night after the brown truck arrived, I did rough prep work on the body and drilled holes for the potentiometers. A big shout out to Rob LoPrinzi @ Sadowsky for helping me make sure everything was spec'd to accomodate the preamp and controls.

    Clamped up to drill pilot holes for the cavity controls:

    Getting ready to drill for the Sadowsky preamp:

    Fastened in the drill press for the control layout:

    Tape protects against chipout and scrapes from the drill bit:

    Measure twice, drill once, great success!
