    Is the tele neck pickup located exactly at the same distance from the bridge as a strat pickup? Apart from the differences in the pickup itself, is it also positioned differently along the scale length?

    I want to cut a new pickguard and put a strat neck pickup there and I wonder if I need to measure to a different spot.

    Don't know the actual spec but I'll say yes. About 6 1/4 to 6 1/2 in.
    Doesn't matter, anyway.
    Just enlarge the cavity, as needed, for the Strat pup and cut the guard to fit, not the other way around.
