    Greeting All !

    I am looking to work over an old tele that has a humbucker in the bridge.
    Does anyone know if they make an insert or plate to fill in around the opening of the humbucker so I can mount a straight S.D. Lil' 59 pickup (from a Strat)in there...(it was a freebie, so I thought I would try it)

    Thanks Much!

    I'm not aware of one, but it would be pretty easy to make one from pickguard material, aluminum, or wood.

    On a few of the last challenge entries, I just superglued a strat pickup to a piece of scrap pickguard material and it worked well. I think I had to grind down the ends by the holes a little to fit in the tele bridge. I think a tele bridge would cover most if not all of a humbucker route.
