Hi, if you unscrew the pickguard of a strat and pull it off, will the knobs, pickups, and pickup selector go with it, or do I have to do something to it? Also, I'm thinking of routing out a tiny space in the body under the pickguard for the wires of a kill switch (2-way Toggle flip switch) to go to the output volume pots. This way i could install a killswitch on the cut away arm with the pickguard on it and not see the routing job i did. Is it recommended or would it be too much stress on the body? It's Agathis wood if that helps.
