Why have cheaper eastern import copy guitars have smaller internal routing than the American originals? Surely the body sizes are the same (?). First became aware of it when trying to fit a US fender pickup switch to my Squire Tele. Didn,t fit
More recently having started modding an Ibanez and am being forced to buy lower quality switches pots etc, cos the better quality stuff doesn't fit (rear loaded controls so cant rout)/
A lot of cheaper guitars are quite good quality apart from pots, switches etc, so I would have thought that it makes sense to be able to accommodate fitting them?
