Probably a drill. It's be easiest if you made a tiny pilot hole or little indent before you drill the 1/4 inch hole, and go at a relatively lower speed (I'd assume this all applies to plastic enclosures as well, because I know it works for pickguards...)

Unibit. Look it up.

Drill a pilot hole, and then go REALLY slow.

+1 on the pilot hole thing.

I screwed up on the holes for my tailpiece and while tuning it earlier today the whole thing almost lifted out. I had to re-fill and re-drill the holes but I did the pilot hole thing and it worked perfectly.

Again, a pilot hole is fine, but for something that large, then use a pilot hole and a Unibit to gradually increase the size. That way, you won't either crack or rip the plastic.

Punching the hole with an adjustable auto-punch, drilling a 2mm pilot hole then using a Unibit.

you guys are really making it sound harder than it is to drill a hole. a pilot hole than the 1/4th inch bit slowly on a drill press. even without a drill press.
#10
Variable speed hand held drill with a 1/4" bit on it. clamp the pickguard down. push straight down.

do you have access to a vertical milling machine, bcuz that would be ur best and safest way to handle it. you probably also have no idea what im talking about but oh well
