    Hello :D

    I'm going to build my own stratocaster, using parts that I like to use and so forth. However, I never use (and don't really like the tone) the middle pickup, and was wondering if there's any trustworthy website that sells a custom strat scratchplate with only the bridge and neck single coil pickup holes cut out (as well as tone, volume and pickup selector holes), and no middle pickup hole? If not, what's the best way to cut into a blank scratchplate to do this?

    Warmoth makes them and will do them in any configuration you want. They also have several colors/materials to choose from.

    THanks for the links guys :D I'm gathering the money for this project at the minute, so I'm not going to order just yet, but I'm glad that there's no need for frustration when cutting into a blank!
