Weird. Yesterday I had a brief daydream (for no reason), about a bunch of holes drilled in a bass -- and there it is! 😬

Wooo... you´re a man of courage! So... how does it balance know?

I would have done it differently. I might have drilled the holes from the backside but stoped before  they pass to the frontside.

Just remember that when you come to sell it, it will be in the eBay Weird & Wonderful section with the usual suspects pointing and laughing...

the back has some routing out as well. It balances quite well, 'cos i now put the strap on the bolt on the front instead of the normal place

Someone has already mentioned Russ Ballard. I remember an early Precision (1956 I believe) being advertised on eBay that looked perfect but the description mentioned it had been heavily drilled underneath the scratchplate to lighten it.

I think you can get at least one more hole in there, just to finish it off😁
