I'm almost ready to route the pickup cavities in my superstrat build, but I have a problem with wood thickness for the neck pickup. About how shallow can I make the pickup cavity and still make it work?
.roughly the height of the pickup, or as deep as you can allow really
if its hardmount, you have to know the highet of the pickup, the height of the bridge saddles, and how high the strings will be when fretted on the last fret. then you can determine how deep to make the cavity so that the pickup is the correct distance away from the strings.
