    For my V, I'm going to install a strat style jack like below in the bottom side wing. Any idea what Forstner bit and angle works best?

    Generally, I'll use a 7/8" bit, but I kinda eyeball the angle. Once it's drilled, I'll clean up the rest of it with a dremel with the drum sander attachment if needed.

    Thanks Sully. I suppose as long as it sits in there and has plenty of room for the wires and jack you're good to go.
