Noob Q's About Pots And Cavity Depth

Recommended Posts

I'm still in my planning stage of my first build, a double cut carved top. I know, bad choice for a first build but I'm gonna take my time and hopefully end up with a nice guitar. The answer to my question is probably obvious but I'm gonna throw it out there anyway. I know I can get long shaft pots which would allow me to route the control cavity without getting in to the maple top, or maybe just in to it. Do you guys care if you route in to the top? Does it really matter? I'm going to put the three way switch in the same cavity so I guess I'll have to route deeper anyway for it to reach through. Or should I get one of those longer three ways and maybe using a forstner bit drill deep enough to make that switch work.

Any thoughts are appreciated, Thanks.
