I am currently putting a humbucker in my Falcon and would like to ask for suggestions on cutting the body to accomodate the double coil. I DO NOT have a router and am looking for someway to cut the body. Thanks in advance

there is no other way to do it, set aside from hand tools and elbow grease. If you don't have a router, have a professional do it. Other wise, it will look like crap.

You could use the Drill & Chisel method where you go along the whole outline of where the humbucker would be and then use a chisel to clear all wood inside the drilled outline. I would only do this if you are going to use a pickguard because it would take many hours of fileing and sanding to get it clean looking.
yeah, find a friend who's dad owns a workshop or go to a school woodshop class or something
