Working on some advanced circuitry: mid pup always on, toggle for neck/bridge, one volume, one tone, passive 'black ice' fuzz switch, a 9v distortion knob, and maybe a piezo. I hope I have room to mount all the controls

Uncle Toad, I'm back on the grid after being at the house up North with no internet, and saw your comment on the DoublHandy.
