Also, this way I wont have to unstring the thing to adjust pickup height.
huh? You don't have to unstring the guitar for that. just unscrew the pickguard (which is also referred to as "Scratchplate") and slide it sideways underneath the strings.
...and how often are you gonna adjust the height anyway?
it seems a lot of fuss is created to put 2 screws into the body cavity.
its not that hard to align the pickup and guard. drop it in and mark it.
Imho it is more fiddley when the wired pickup is attached to the guard.
there would be more chances you'd have to unstring the guitar if you want to change something. (pickup or scratplate)
also I prefer 5-hole guards, not 8 or even ten.
just my 2 cent of course.
