I was gonna get a new pickguard on my strat (american) and I could get a pickguard with the bridge pickup routed the other angle. I thought that was pretty cool, but now i'm wondering does the cavity behind it have enough room to have the pickup be angled the other way?
take off the pickguard and look?
no i'm ordering it with the pickguard, so that would be problematic. just a simple question.
wait you're ordering the strat too? if you are then it'll have the room. if you have the strat with you then take the current pickguard off of it, and check to see if its a rectangular cavity or just enough to have the current one there.
i think you'd have to order a custom pickguard. and take off the current pickguard and see, if it has a pool route, if it does you should be okay, if not, go get a router.
