I don't drill holes in them, but I do cut the tabs off. I route the body so it is a pressure fit.
I like the sound of my pickups screwed directly into the body, just sounds better to me...
That is neat. Very neat. Adjustment?
Do you rout a backside channel or use a precision drill hole to route the wiring to an endpin jack?
It's a press fit. Tap in down with a rubber Hamer to lower it. There are two little set screws in the back that act like stops, and can set the height or raise it.
The wire hole is drilled from the end pin jack. The ground wire intercepts it under the bridge.
Also very cool. You do have your own thing going on.
that's not how it should work, the screw should slide through the pickup and only thread into the body; otherwise you lose the adjustment capability
OK, as much as i dig your minimalist parts count, "natural materials-forward" aesthetic and "works for how i play, if you don't like it too bad" design, i hate that generic strat neckplate!
it just looks jarring up there blocking all that lovely body wood
i think if any design called out for recessed individual ferrules for the neck screws it would be this one
Well you haven’t steered me wrong yet. I will give it serious consideration.
