I wonder what people think about putting the volume knob on the top side of the box rather than through the lid. Seems like the knob can get in the way when strumming, especially with a smaller box. Most people seem to put the knobs on the lid, in the corner near the bridge.
related question: if the side or the lid is too thick for the potentiometer shaft length, is it better to remove some material to thin the wood, or just buy a pot with a longer shaft?
I like that design.
Thanks Michael. Might be a case of design before functionality though, not really enough soundhole area me thinks. Never mind.
I did one where the knobs are near the strap lug, but just out of the way.
What I liked is that there is less wire movement when I need to open the lid.
