HELLO THERE Brad ! Thanks for your kind comments!The shapes used is the number 5 and 5 in mirror image, and they allteady PoP by the cb Lid it self, i did use the wire behind the sound hole option in a earlyer build ,and they rumble ,and a other reason ,i like to look inside , cause then people see my brand logo , whits is  "i think more in style "if you know what i mean. But thank you for the input on the build !

I like the shapes of the sound holes. Something that you might do, (if you're so inclined) is take a wire mesh or screen, and place that inside the box to give the holes some definition. This will hide any distraction from internal materials. Try some yellow/gold color screen to match the box's border, and, surrounded by the brick red of the lid, it should add some extra pop. It's a great build!

Good answers.  No, I do not remember that box.   But I like it.  You waited until the time and ideas and materials were right.  Good on you, Andries.

Thanks UJ ! dont you reconize the Box ? you send it to me in your first mailing whit your ready made !,what is it now 8 - 9 years ago?  its a real fine pick up,its not a easy installement , couse of the drilling and fitting to the box , but it works clean and buzz free  and relates good on my other acqepment ,meaning pedals & amp! the pick-up relates the little rezzo sound like exspected ! if il do the numbers, looks 7, sound 9, installing 3, wiring up 7, and for durabillety i hope a 10 ! but that is still a wait and see !

i hope that answers your question !

Oh, those sound holes suit the rest quite well too.

Looks very good. I like the little reso, saddle and tail. Nice box too. How do you rate that pickup?
