Bass Body Control Layouts

Warmoth drills holes to fit the most common pots and switches:

  • Volume and tone control holes are 3/8" in diameter. This size fits most volume, tone, and blend pots.
  • Toggle holes are 1/2" in diameter. This size fits the standard LP-style toggle switch.
  • Blade Switch holes fit any standard 3-way or 5-way Strat®-style blade switch.
  • We do not drill for mini-toggle switches (1/4").
  • We do not drill control holes in custom locations.

Different bodies use different control layouts. Use the diagrams below to determine the control locations for the body you are building.
