Hi, in Lark's recent post, First Build", Lane Martin commented on my reso guitar with a concealed volume pot' so I thought I would show the process here. I think the photos will tell the story.

The photo on that post shows two reso guitars the one on the right is louder due to the larger soundholes, the one with the concealed pot should have had larger soundholes.

The parts used to sink the pot below the top The wood fitting is glued to the inside of the top. Pot installed. Soundhole cover glue to modified knob, and rotates. Thanks for looking Taff

Snazzy. I like it.

That's a really cool idea.
