    Hello!

    I'm a long time lurker who's going to try building a partscaster together with a more technical friend.

    I'm just wondering if this Charlie Christian pickup from Thomann is pickguard or body mount.

    If this question is in the wrong forum, I apologize.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    So just to make sure: I can order that one and either body mount it or pickguard mount it?

    It will mount either way, just be advised that it requires a lot of routing and major pick guard modification.

    Just to be sure, email Lollar pickups.

    Lollar sells the pickup with either the option to mount to the pickguard or to mount it to the body. The body mount version has larger holes in the base plate, while the pickguard mount has smaller, tapped holes. There's also a difference in the size of the base plate, but I don't think Lollar tells us which is which.

    I can't tell from the picture which one that is. I'd email Thomann and ask them.

    Thanks for all the replies! I've emailed Thomann and haven't heard back (yet), but thanks for the tip about emailing lollar if I still haven't got a reply in a few more days
