Control Cavity Depth?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by count_funkula, Jul 24, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know what the standard depth is for a rear routed control cavity? I'm using a 1 3/4' thick body.

  2. There isn't a standard depth. Depth is going to be determined by the length of the threaded portion of the pots in your electronic setup. Some are longer while some are shorter :mad: You'll have to carefully measure to see what you need AND what you can get away with. You can also create a shallower cavity with deeper circular cavities around the pots. That's trickier but looks good on the inside.
