    All I can say that it will be a very tight fit. Normally Sadowsky pre itself is quite small (but larger than Aguilar), but there are a lot of wires you'll have to deal with.

    With careful planning and if you're very good working in tight spaces, it "might" fit. But don't take my word for it.

    It can fit. I've done it a couple of times but it is a tight fit. I would recommend using an external battery box.
