    Hi, Im having warmoth build a p body, routed for 2 p pickups and a dual battery 18 volt battery box. But im not sure where to mount the preamp.

    maybe i can route a small compartment past the controls under the pickguard??

    any ideas?

    Are you getting a pickguard? Or is it all rear routed? You mentioned a pickguard, so maybe...

    Anywho, I mounted my EMG preamp under the pickguard. I had to move a minimal amout of wood, but it fit pretty easily. I vote under the pickguard.

    yup, its going to be all top route with a pickguard, with the only rear route being the double battery box.

    I guess this setup will work out pretty good!, the bart preamp is pretty tiny too.

    Now, how to drill a hole long enough for the wires to reach the p-bass cavity, hmmm..
    perhaps i can have warmoth do that.
