cuz the only visible parts on an uninstalled pickup are:
pole pieces
pickup cover
baseplate

and "post a picture of it" is to post a pic of your guitar. we know wtf a pickup is.

there is a cover in the back of a guitar so that you can change them (not talking about the springs the cover im talking about is the one slightly lower and on its left) and that part is just completly wood.

Where's the place you're talking about?

Just open in paint and draw a circle around the area, then repost

I'm guessing you want to change your pickups. Your Squier has pickguard-mounted pickups, so there is no need for one of those access covers. That's why there isn't one. The wiring is all located under the pickguard, so all you have to do is remove the pickguard and get to work. Well, I'd actually have a professional do the work, but you know what I mean.

I think the last couple posts probably answered your question. There isn't a back cover because there isn't supposed to be one.

Posted to tell you your image wasn't working, but you already typed that out while I was typing. I'm slow, I know.

Maybe, only maybe, your thinking of the toggle switch in les-paul style guitars? thats all i can think of. And if your guitar doesn't have routing there then it most likely shouldn't have routing there.

Again, you don't have to have a cover there. That's why your guitar doesn't have an access hole or cover; why it's all wood there. You change the pickups or mess with the wiring by taking off the strings and the pickguard.

In order to do the modding, you'll probably want to send it to your local music store and have everything (new pickups and such) installed for you, unless you're skilled with a soldering iron.
