If anyone has a Squier bullet strat HSS can you please tell me if it has 3 separate cavities or one big cavity for the pickups. Thanks so much. I can't find a picture online. Only the Fender models. I've also checked my own Strat but its again a Fender. But I want to know about the Squier modles. Thanks.

I'm fairly certain its just one big cavity.

The newer ones will typically have what's called a swimming pool route.

My Affinity has the same route.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Huh? Mines a swimming pool.

I guess they vary.

Mines HSH too, guess the older ones were built better with the HSH in mind.

Just loosen the strings, loosen the pickguard, and lift it out, it's not hard and you wont screw anything up, since everything is attached to the pickguard in a very orderly fashion.

^this is just the kind of thing that happens when you have guitars being made in different factories to very low tolerances - these are not precisely crafted musical instruments we're talking about.

really it's luck of the draw as to whether you get a HSH or swimming pool route with the low end squiers. there's no direct answer that can be given without there being some kind of exception somewhere.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Well, from what we are seeing here, there is no exception, it's just pretty much random. But I do have to say my HSH was not cut to the modern HSH spacing, the middle coil and neck coil is a tad bit far inward, and I had to shave some wood out of my guitar to fit my pickups in there.
