    That's a really nice VOX wraparound, but probably more expensive than the whole guitar ... IF you can find one.

    I like the guitars, even saw a few today at both a local GC and SA... I cannot get past the switch in that location.

    Nice guitar though.

    I agree with that. I adjusted mine so that it throws parallel to the neck, more like a Tele, but it's still awkward.

    You can move it. I did from back of the bridge on my PRS SE Soapbar 1.

    Where is @Pat V. ? I think he just opened the guitar and swapped the position of the volume and the switch, I think the leads may have been long enough.

    Yo need to open up the volume pot hole to fit the switch. Thus you need a bigger washer for the volume pot to hold in the larger jack hole.

    I am looking for a purchase source and a video that shows the sound. Maybe.

    I am going for cheap but good enough pups. Haha. SD’s too much $$$$$ for this guitar.

    Buff it to a shine with wax? I think I will. Should I lightly sand the neck to make it more like a Matt finish? Thinking about the GM P94’s.

    No wax, car paint compound is the thing or maybe a bathroom cleaner cream like VIM.

    No sandpaper on the neck, use Scotch Brite pads.

    No worries.
    I`ve been wanting one of these for a while now for my Epi Junior as they have a lot more leeway for adjustment and I think that it would look cool on a Mustang bodied P90 Junior that I`ve had a hankering to build: give that guitar a minimalist look(that and I`ve never been a fan of the Mustang tram anyways,...).
