  7. Some nice details there. I like the body horns being almost round or, maybe oval is the right word.
    Either way it's cool.

    Your work looks fantastic! If I may ask... how deep did you route the pocket for the Musicman pickup?

    Thank you! Really nice to hear that you like it.

    The pickup cavity depth is 16mm.
    I got the pickup with 2 thick (1/2") foam pads that act like springs, so I fully pressed them against the table,
    then measured from the table top to top of the pu and took 9mm off.
    No need for routing to have wire channels , they pass under the pickup.
