    I have a guitar routed for 2 HBs.

    I want to put a strat neck and strat bridge pickup (actually a duncan twangbanger) in the HB routes.

    Can I stick the strat pickups straight on humbucker covers and mount them? Would the poles line up with the holes in the hb covers? Also I hear there could be 'interference' issues? Any idea about this?

    Or

    Can I could mount the strat pickups directly on :
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G344NGZ/?tag=tdpri-20

    So the top line would show the poles of the strat pickup. While I would have to fill in the remaining space/bottom line with something else : foam or sponge?

    Also with this there would be a question whether the poles are better aligned if they were positioned in the middle of the HB - like a SD phatcat.

    Or

    May be use adapters like these :

    But think they will look kinda bare.

    So was thinking whether I could round them up with :
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F6WHNVS/?tag=tdpri-20

    Would I be able to mount these along with the adapters?


    Appreciate any insights.

    GFS sells plastic mounting rings for Strat/Tele pickups in HB routes.
