how do i drill a hole from the pickup cavity into the control cavity? i just cant figure it out
12" long drill bit with a 1/4" diameter. There's a special name given to this bits, but I can't think of it. Something like marine bits or shipbuilders bits or something like that.
What you do is you drill at a very shallow angle.
I know them as gun drills.
As you angle the bit from the pup cavity to the control cavity, I'd put a few layers of masking tape on the top at the far (bass-side) edge of the pup route, so that you don't mess the top if you slip.
My mate drills a hole from lead jack to pup cavity via control cavity. Gets it all in one.
ha, that's brilliant!
If that's brilliant then maybe I have a chance ...
It's called an aircraft bit. It's a long bit.
