    of a Fender Strat (MIM).

    Has anyone ever done this, or know of how it can be done?

    I have 2 Texas Specials and a SD Pearly Gates+. I'm sure if I would have to do any routing, being that the cavity in the Strat's body is pretty large already.

    What kind of supplies would I need and where would I get them?

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

    I have used pups that were intended for this purpose (SC'c only) and they were supplied with extra long, thin, wood screws and pieces of foam which were mounted to the base of the pup for the support. Yup, that simple. YMMV.

    Where could I get these supplies? I mean, I know where I could get the wood screws, but what kind of foam and what consistency? Are there places online that sell these in a kit by chance?

    Thank you so much for your reply.
