ObG 335 question

Post by scooticus » Wed Mar 28, 2012 2:03 pm

I recently bought an '88 ObG 335 and found that there is an access rout in the bridge pickup cavity that opens into the control area, presumably so the controls don't have to be removed/replaced through the f-holes. Is this common to all 335's, or just the earlier ones?

To be honest, it seems like a good idea! :)
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

It was still ok for me after all I've heard before...something like one hour and it was done.
