    Hi, I'm currently building a P / J style bass guitar from two pieces of Jarrah Timber (i know that is not ideal) (P style neck, J Style Body, J style Pickup configuration)

    What is the best way to get the wiring from the two J bass style pickup cavities to the tone and volume pot cavity? I was thinking of Drilling a hole with a drill at an angle? But the pickup cavities are very thin and hard to get a decent angle...Any constructive Suggestions/ Criticisms?

    Yessir, I have the 3 bit kit 1/4", 3/8" and 5/8". 2 builds so far, I have drilled the jack (side mount of course) just use the bit through the jack hole, to drill for the wiring.

    Cheers dudes, really helpful advice. That first guitar only took 2 weeks. I Think the bass should only take about a week to build once i have all the parts and the neck.
