t-slide, I didn't cut out the pick guard, I just bought a new one, also from GFS, pre-cut for humbuckers. I did need to substantially rout out the body though. The new pickup is more than twice as fat as the original one and the mounting bolts are moved a bit as well. I've got a Dremel-type mini-grinder with a small router base and bits which is what I used to rout out that cavity. That may not be the best tool for the job, but I think that using a full-size router would have required totally disassembling the guitar, which I didn't want to do. I've seen (and done) neater work before, but it's all hidden now Image
Next time that I need to open things up there, I'll try and remember to take a photo of the hole and post it here.

Looks like a great job on the pickup install. Besides making a new hole for the pickup, did you have to route out the body for that pickup?

I've got a lap steel with a rail style stacked-bucker with a switch between single coil and humbucker operation. I don't really hear much difference at low volume, but when it's cranked, the single coil has got a good bite. That pup is in the bridge position, though, where a single coil can really shine.

Good luck with your project. Give a us another post when you've got something rigged up.
