Well, it's done.

I cut the shape around the mark left by the old pre-amp. I sorta liked the look.

It was done with a sharp blade, patiently scoring the shape over and over again until it cut through. Then some shaping with flat and curved files, a fine round file for the tight corners and some sanding. I followed up with a bit of Minwax Sedona stain on the inside edges.

The edges blend in perfectly, but for some reason, they look much lighter in the image...It must be the lighting. I may apply a bit of satin varnish on the edges after the stain dries. Maybe not...the guitar is a satin finish anyway.
