, thanks for pointing this out.
, just look at my web page where I've posted two pictures at a fairly steep angle and rejudge.
well the steep angle is the 'problem',i see the cavity and the nut sitting there,no miracles..you can't hide the nuts properly with this assembly,that's is why i wrote that its a bad idea,because you still can see them.
+ the cavity will be just a dust/dirt collector over time...!
Its not big problem until the day a guy need to change a potmeter because its crashing and have no access to the nut.
keep in mint other scenarios,like built vocoders sold,then the new owner has a problem and send it for service...
BTW,your diy proposal is with Davies knobs ,but builders will use all kind of knobs,if using metal alu knobs available at Banzai effects & Smallbear ,those are less fluted then the Davies and you will see more easy the cavity+nut.
Rogan knobs are an alternative for the Davies and might cover completely cavity,your vocoder will also look 50% nicer..try!
