    Hello there.

    What would it look like if I just mounted a humbucker ring and a humbucker over the bridge pickup hole in a Telecaster? Just rout out whatever was necessary to clear away. Forget the bridge, I'd just put in a shortie.

    Be careful routing. Was routing my Telecaster for a humbucker Tele bridge and the router got away from me and tore out a big chunk. Ruined the body and the guitar is in pieces now. Lesson learned.
