Anybody do this yet or want to? Where is your optimum location? Why? Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

PS - Referring to changing the placement of the pots and switches on the guitar. For example, moving the pickup selector switch or master volume to another area of the guitar to make it more ergonomic and user-friendly.

Sure it's totally possible.

On a Gretsch, the tone switch up top and the master volume on the treble bout make no sense to me. So I move the master vol under the bridge and take the tone switch out. I really have no use for a volume and tone for each pickup. A master vol, a master tone, and a three-position switch...and I'm happy.
