M1a Cable Placement?
I just installed a M1a in my Martin, having had one installed professionally in my J45.
As the martin had already had a pickup installed I fitted it myself as I didn't need to ream the endpin out, but I noticed that I've attached the cable clips quite low on the sides of the guitar and the wire can touch the back of the guitar. On my J45 the cable is probably midway up the sides of the guitar.
I don't know if the cable has any effect on the sound - does it really matter where it is, and should I detach the cable ties and move them up a bit or leave it as it is?
