    Any know if a J-retro preamp will fit directly into a Warmoth Jazz body with MM+J pickups and front routed control cavity?

    A heads-up... on a top-routed J body, the control plate placement interferes with the stock MM pickup position. We get around this by moving the MM about 1/2" closer to the bridge in this case only. No extra charge for the custom placement, though.
