    I am building a bass body blank for someone, and they asked for dark star pickup router cut-outs, but I can't find the dimensions for them.
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks alot.

    The pocket dimensions are 3.125" by 1.820" with a maximum depth of 1". The rout is set back .24" from the leading edge of the chrome mount (neck side). Hammon recommends a 1/4" radius on the pocket corners. The outside dimensions ofthe chrome mounts is 3.59" by 2.61". This will place the centreline of the poles 1.045" back from the leading edge of the chrome mount.

    Note that these dimensions are for the DS-3 pickup and were supplied to me by Hammon Engineering.
