This has given me an idea.

The plans for a 335 course are cool, but 335s are a bit big, and a bit.. Gibson.

How about a 335 meets Bandsman design @markbailey?

The ‘not f hole’ was inspired by one from a Rickenbacker - but the other way round….

And is much better design as far as I'm concerned!

I still don't think that the vintage f-hole design looks "right" on a (relatively) modern electric guitar.  It's too ornate and fiddly as a shape when the rest of a guitar's body is smooth curves or straight lines. 

Whereas the shape that you've used fits far better in the overall shape/design.

👍
