OK, I figured this out. The SCNs actually go fairly easy into the vintage neck route. I read a lot of bitching and moaning about folks having troubles mounting the neck pup. Here is what I found:

1. The SCN is about 3/32" taller than a 2008 American Standard neck pup. So it is hardly "WAY" taller. It is a bit taller.

2. To mount to the body, you have to remove the bushings for the little rubber tensioners. It is no big deal, they are just pressed in and a small wiggle with some needle nose and they pop right out.

3. Cut about a third off the little rubber tensioners. This allows lower adjustment options.

4. Go to home depot. Find the same size mounting screws but in 3/4" length instead of 1". You get better screws and a more positive connection with the screw diver.

The bridge pops right in, solder the leads and BAM, they sound great! Really the neck requires only some slight adjustments and the SCN fits in and adjusts just as well as a normal pup!

I wondered why there was even a question. Have you tried hard mounts? I like to use springs to find tone height, then replace them w washers. The body vibrations move the coil too, so you get an acoustic 3D effect to the sound.
