The oval hole is Just for looks something differentWow, there's a lot to like there! Love the damask-esque (?) treatment to the sides and headstock, four basic food-groups of single-coils represented, the Burns vibrato ... all very cool!
But I gotta ask, the "hole"? Is there a functional reason behind it, or were you just having fun with the styling? I'd love to find out more about some of your design decisions and what went into building it!
All in all, one of the most original builds I've seen in a while - Congrats!
