    I can’t seem to find measurements for the middle Telecaster pickup location. I need to route for a Tele neck pup in the middle.

    My mid-90's Nashville Tele has a swimming pool route which was a good thing since the middle pickup cut on the Fender custom shop pickguard was in a slightly different place. I would say do a swimming pool route or get your pickguard first and base your spacing on that.

    I’m waiting on the pickguard, but the USPS has shipped it to Houston, then Shreveport, then San Antonio, then Little Rock. I’m getting impatient. The neck is already HB routed. Swimming pool huh? I might need to switch to a mid Strat pup.

    Still waiting on the pick guard, it made it to Baton Rouge. Went ahead with a drill press which didn’t require hardware removal. Body mounted the pup.
