    Hello again,

    I've got the OBP-3 electronics with a 5-pot, 1 switch configuration, plus 2 batteries. I'd like to order a compartment cover and rout the cavity in the next week, but am wondering if anyone has used the cover that Stew Mac carries. If yes, do you think that it could fit a cavity big enough for these electronics, or will I need to fabricate a cover on my own and cut a larger cavity? Thanks!

    I have the stew-mac routing set it is pretty big but I wouldn't know how to answer your question. It would be tough to tell without having it right in front of you......t
  3. I used the stew mac templates for my last bass, it was not big enough for 2 stacked + 1 pot, a switch and an output jack plus all the preamp modules of a bart NTMB. It's better to make your own. Use a computer program to draw the cavity + cover templates and cut to size after adhering the paper to template material.
