What size are they? Soap at size or bigger?
They're modified 1590A Hammond cases. I can make them pretty much any shape and size, but thought the look of these casings worked well.
That's makes sense, they are pretty deep, I know there's not much weight on a pickup screw but that's a lot of wood to carve out to get the pickups at the right heigjt yeh? About 30-35mm with springs/foam?

A BIG thankyou to Dave, for the photographs! You're a legend, Mate.

So, this is the box of tricks that the Monster pickup will activate: octave, tone, drive and compression; this unit will sit hidden under the scratch plate of my Jazz bass, in the same position as a neck pickup.

Cheers
Heath

Excellent. A squier tele bass would be a perfect guinea pig, 2nd hand cheap and long pickguard for dials

Got that covered with an incoming Warmoth shorty in parts that'll shorten the build time frame considerably. Little bit more expensive than a 2nd hand Tele or Squire Jazz but I'll be able to reuse the pups on my other project.

I like how it is pretty much a 2-in-1 thing happening there. a Cave Monster AND a jazz in one
