^ is it possible to put a thinline telecaster pickguard on to a strat style body without doing any serious work to the body or pickguard



would one like that^ work?

im hoping that by doing this i could cover the hole for the middle pickup

anyone know if i can do this?

There will be a gap at the neck. A strat neck is more rounder at the join than a tele. There is also a very good chance the bridge pickup route won't be covered

I agree that you won't get full routing coverage.

Go to www.warmoth.com and have them drill you out a custom Strat pickguard. I assume you're going for a H-H config?

Well, it's not going to cover the routs, unless you've got a very special Strat - the strat bodies I've seen, even where routed for S-S-S specifically have vestigial routs between the pups for the wires, as well as the control cavity being a top-rout.

The Tele pickguard is also shorter than a strat pickguard, because of the bridge style.

Just cut it out yourself or have someone else do it instead of buying a replacement thinline tele pickguard.
