what tool should i use to cut a hole into a pickguard ???? i have trace the hole i need to make .. now i need to cut in it .


So right now i have my squier mini ... which is S/S/S ... im gonna put a humbucker in it ( the squier mini is unversal routing so no problem about the wood ) .... the problem is the pickguard ... ( the mini pickguard is not the same size as a standart strat so i cant just buy one .


ill need to "cut" another hole right next to the angle to fit the humbucker . ( my humbucker will be in angle ... probably .. i havent decide yet but i think it look cool + i will only have to drilled 2 hole instead of 4 .

thx

A small hole drilled near each corner is a good start. Then use a sabresaw to cut near the line. Use files to finish the job.

bad idea. if you put a HB on an angle, you won't have both coils under all the strings. the coil closest the neck won't be under the low E string. The coil closest the bridge won't be under the high e string.

but what if you only slightly angle it?
That’s how we’ll know. This is not a test, oh no

Then it won't look like it was meant to be angled. It will just look "not quite straight".
