I did a wood electronics cover, which I really ended up liking. It has an electronics cavity because I installed a piezo bridge with a preamp for it which would not fit through the F hole, or pickup holes.

Oh very nice. This one's on my list -- i love that 335 squak
Awesome! And the access cover for the electronics is a great idea. It is a MAJOR pain to wire a semi hollowbody through the F holes.

Always good to see your builds Dave. Excuse my ignorance but is the idea of the hollow body to reduce the weight of the guitar or is there some functional musical reason i am not aware of?
Did some googling to understand but it did not answer my question found this site you may find useful there is info on it about wiring the electronics http://www.doctorvintage.com/ check out white papers.
This guy speaks to Vaughns point and your idea of having an access
Looking forward to the rest of the build thanks for posting.
