    Title says it all. Looking to put a humbucker in the neck position of a Strat with a single middle and single bridge.

    Kind of a unique setup because I haven't seen too many! Plenty of bridge bucker pickguards and plenty of neck and bridge bucker pickguards. No SSH (as opposed to HSS) guards that I can find.

    If I can find a good blank or partial blank I can route out the pickup holes as desired. I'm familiar with what Warmoth offers. Just curious if anyone knows anything else.

    I'm not interested in making my own guard entirely. I did that once and I decided once was enough o_O

    How about a Seymour Duncan strat pickup sized humbucker. Then the pickguard issue is solved. Or checkout warmoth or wd for a custom pickguard.

    Look at Zhangbucker pickups. David is specialised in low wound Tele humbuckers.

    DiMarzio chopper is a great strat sized neck pickup.

    You can also try Chandler or Terrapin. They have to make it, it's a custom item.

    If you want to rout the pickup holes yourself, you can use a regular pickguard and add a mounting ring, or buy a blank guard on aliexpress.

    Dragonfire will custom cut almost any Strat pickup configuration starting at $29.

    Warmoth and WD don't offer quite as many options but are also good.
