I am currently playing a Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster Special (link below) but have decided to upgrade the single coil Jazzmaster neck pickup to a Seymour Duncan SH-2 (Jazz model) Humbucker, the only problem is that I don't know how to get this humbucker mounted into the pickguard and guitar considering the standard Jazzmaster pickup is bigger than a humbucker and mounted differently. Is there ANY way I could mount a Seymour Duncan humbucker in the neck position of this guitar without having to get an entire new pickguard???

Here is the Squier Vintage Modified Jazzmaster:


Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
Couple options. You could mount the pickup EVH style where the pickup is mounted directly to the body (looks kind of ugly). You may have to modify the baseplate of the humbucker to fit in the p90 cavity the guitar's body does not have a swimming pool cavity.

The p90 pickup is longer and slightly narrower than the humbucker. I believe there is an adapter for it: http://www.acys-lounge.de/humbucker-fuer-p90-fraesung.html

You might be able to build a similar plate adapter that will allow you to mount the humbucker to the plate, then mount the plate to the pickguard. Really at this point, you might as well buy a new pickguard. The only easy solution is to mount the humbucker straight into the body, but as I said it's kind of ugly.
