    Id like to add a rear control cavity to a jazz bass I have. The control plate from Stew Mac won't work. I need one like the ones on the Sadowsky, Valenti etc. Does anyone know of a source for those and possible a template? thx.

    If you already routed the back I made a missing cover by putting lipstick around edge of route and transfering to card board, cut and transfer to whatever material you choose. If you have not routed yet make cover first then use as template.

    These back covers are not universal. I should have a cover from USA Custom Guitars. Shape is similar to that but the hole pattern is different.

    Email me your address and I'll send it to you as soon as I have a chance.
