    I am building a Lightwave equipped bass and I am afraid that the control cavity isn't going to bee deep enough to house the electronics. Right now I am looking at about .9 inches for everything, but I might be able to squeeze an extra eighth out of it. If all else fails, I will just have to get some 8/4 mahogany and resaw it, but I want to save that unless there is no other option.
