I have a Lollar charlie christan blade pickup that i want to use in the neck position of my first build. It is a double-f hole thinline style and i was going to mount all the controls through the wood les paul style and not use a pickguard. I have shaped my body, and have the template attached with standard tele PU route shapes. I cut my chambers with a jig saw and have glued on the top cap (with f holes already cut) and was going to glue on the back cap, with an access panel, when i was done with the top routes and drilling control holes. What are some ideas for mounting this PU? I was thinking of gently taking off the laminate top plate for the PU, and routing a shallow channel that fits the body of the PU tight for the top 3/8" and then opens up for the wires, and mounting it from the back, then re attaching the laminate PU top on the top of the guitar after it was installed. I figure i could have a second access panel in the back that would let me get to it. However I think it would be a pain to build a chamber though that would allow me to mount it and not crowd the wires etc. Or maybe i should route out a regular neck PU cavity and then build a plate out of something like laminate or maybe light steel that would have an opening that matches the shape of the top piece? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, especially for builders that have done pickguard-less builds before.
