Adding F-Holes to Showcase L5S?

According to the description, Showcase L5S M593 can have an F-hole added to it.

Is that unique to that one body, or might that become a more common option? I assume its just the upper F-hole.

Just wanted to know. Thanks!

Don't know, one asked to add a second F hole on a already routed body and they said no.... Hope they can do it now (really hope NO, in deed, no money :sad:)

I would assume that they could rout an F-hole because its a semi hollow body. Im not really sure about the double F-hole option, but I bet if you could call they would do just about anything for a price.

Some of the chambered bodies like the Tele, Strat, and maybe LP have an F-hole route already.  The laminate top may or may not be cut to reveal it.  I imagine it would be much harder to reveal it after it is taken off of the CNC.  A thinline however is all open, so cutting it into the cap, the tolerances wouldn't have to be on a gnat's ass.
