I've looked on the forum and online, but haven't found a good answer. The partscaster I'm building has a Curtis Novak goldfoil going into the neck position. The body I bought was pre-routed for a regular lipstick neck pickup. What's the better solution for mounting the pickup: - putting the goldfoil on top of the pickguard (with holes in the pickguard to screw the pickup to the wood of the guitar) - cutting a hole in the pickguard and routing out below the pickup, then mounting it to either the guitar or pickguard? Some threads say that the first option isn't great because there's very little room between the strings and the pickup. This looks true already without the pickguard. I mention the prerouting for the neck pickup because it's why I want to add a pickguard: to cover those spots.
