The idea of getting a stingray clone and modding it has been dancing in my head for quite a while now. i think about it b4 i sleep,on my way to work and at work. I have two choices . AXL: one tone control one volume solid alder body no cavity at the back passive pickup costs $165 OLP: two tone controls(one for each single coil), one volume bass body cavity at the back,but I heard hard to incorporate active electronics in here passive pickup costs $255 I like the AXL's wood,but its features really fall short of with the OLP offers.cavity at the back(convienient for putting wires) and 3 controls gives more options when I upgrade to an active setup.The again,since the AXL has no cavity dug at the back,it offers more potential?How much would it normally cost,or how difficult will it be for a hole to be sawed out? Further,I would like to find out how much will two knobs on the AXL handicap the upgrade ?Will the $90 difference cover the lack of the tone knob and the cavity?
