As we're winding more and more pickups, we needed something to be able to do quick swaps and test them out with. Here she is!

Hem-Fir body with pine risers, maple/rosewood Tulip neck. Pickguard scraps sliced up to accomodate just about any pickup combinations with ease. I'm loving it!

Frankenstein for sure. Look close and you may see bits of Rice Custom, G&L, Fender, Allparts, Peavey, Washburn, WD, Squier, Electra, and many more.

I love the fancy guitars. But I also love the junkyard/partsdrawer specials!

Awesome!

I've thought about taking a couple of ugly strat bodies and just milling all the way through em to swap from behind. The way you did it is probably a lot easier!

This was a combination of designs I was throwing around with my dad and brother, one of which was to buy a cheap strat and pop the pickup holes through. This worked out better, as the access is improved and the guitar is more stable. I can change to any pickup configuration with the turn of a dozen or so screws. The switches on the control module are for 250k/500k volume and .022/.047/bypass on the tone control. Volume/Tone/Blend. I may make more control modules down the line, but this one covers 90% of what I need for pickup testing.

Moved to proper forum.

Interesting concept.

I always thought of routing the body through from the face to the side...direct mounting the pickups.

Bassplayer mag did something liek that years back to test vintage Jazz style pups.
