Now. THIS is front routed. It is ugly to look at because there will be a pickguard over it so you'll never see it anyway.



THIS is rear routed. It is made to look nice and has a cover put over it. It leaves the front of the guitar looking nice and smooth.



Understand now?
Yes, thanks!

What does "routed" mean?

Is there a functional difference between the two or does it only come into play if you are messing with the internals?

Front routed means it's routed on its rear.
Rear routed means it's routed on its front.

Front routed, has a pickguard, routing for wiring on the front (top) of the guitar.

Rear routes, no pickguard, route for wiring on the rear (back) of body.

What is the difference between front routed and rear routed?

*50 means HSH configuration front routed, *70 means HSH configuration rear routed.

What does "front routed" and "rear routed" mean?

Thanks!
