Let me know if you are wondering anything in particular.
I am wondering if there is any access to the wiring cavity? The back plank appears to be glued or sealed somehow. For the price, this fiddle looks hard to beat but I have a little modification in mind. I often play wireless and prefer to have a preamp onboard(spoiled by my NS CR5). I was hoping to install a endpin preamp such as the Fishman power jack or Schatten Player jack if space allows. Any ideas?
foose4string - I haven't seen let alone held the new Yamaha ( I'm seriously thinking about the 5-string when funds allow ) - but - from others I have owned / held / played (from my own cheapo Thomann to a friend's up-market Yamaha - they all have a "cut/machined-out" electronics enclosure - oh - one (forget which - was a line-conditioner/pre-amp only - nothing else and the enclosure was "somewhat smaller" but - still would be adaptable to a handy-man with a router... LOLOL)
It depends "how much you want to mess with what might be an expensive (yeah, I know, that means different things to different people) EV - but - again - I doubt very much if the electronics enclosure is actually "sealed" - maybe there is manufacturer data available on this ?
That was just my feedback - and I'm sure FM will give you the "real info" on this... (I want one, I want one, LOL)
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
