I am modding a strat, it originally had the pickups attached to the scratch plate (dunno if this is how they all are, this is the first guitar ive pulled apart, I made a new scratchplate for it, but its probably not stable or strong enough to mount the pickups to. Can i mount the pickups with the two screws going through the wood from the back of the guitar, so i can adjust the pickups from the rear of the guitar? or is there some reason why this is not generally done?

I'm no expert but im not sure that is possible.

Don't listen to me though!
