greetings all- just joined up at this site and really looking forward to learning more here... a quick question: what do you guys think of the 'swimming pool' routing on Strat bodies? I've gotten great opportunity to pick up a recent USA model body for a great price. It's for a partscaster effort and it has swimming pool routing in the body. Not my favorite but got such a super deal on the body I couldn't pass it up. I like the idea of the flexibility of that much pickup room but will probably go with a more tradititional Strat pickup configuration -no humbuckers or anything- so I didn't know if it was worth filling part of the pool area in or not. Will it make any difference soundwise at all? Thanks for any insight!
