^he didn't ask that


you can do it with either a file or a dremel.
I have no idea what I'm talking about. Don't belive me.

There isn't a tutorial because this is so simple.
Just keep trying if your humbuckers will fit once in a while. You can also make a drawing on your pickguard using your humbucker as a template.

i have some plywood lying around, could i make a pcikguard out of this?
what thinkness should it be, and are there any good HSH templates?

the plywood would be too brittle to work properly... it would probably be too thick, and shaving it would make it too weak...

Actually converting a SSS to an HSH is possible, but hard to do well... I reccomend a dremel. Also, you'll have to drill new screw holes for the bridge, and the old ones will look ugly... I've done it, and it didn't come out so pretty...

^the neck hole was nice, the bridge however.....

and don't make a pickguard out of plywood. It would be way to ugly.
