    I've got a SD 59n that I want to put into the neck position on my CV tele. there are lots on ebay, amazon all parts and such but to buy 1 that has a humbucker neck cut out are expensive or hard to find that have the vintage 5 hole pattern. will a pickguard with 8 hole modern pattern fit the CV tele?
    I've also found there are lots of guards w/ 5 hole pattern cut for P 90 pickup in the neck position relatively cheap, should I mod 1 of those for my Humbucker?

    Try Stratosphere, I some Strat guards for $10, maybe they have Tele H styles too. P90 holes will be narrower and longer than humbucker. I'd expect 8-hole guards to fit but you'll have screw holes in new places, some people get upset by that even though it's all covered.

    You were right Stratosphere does have them and for only $9.99, proceed to check out... only $46.00 to ship, it even says ship cost calculated by weight. that's some pretty heavy 1 ply plastic right there

    Not sure what the strategy is with that. Nothing puts me off of a vendor more than the shipping price sucker punch.
