This is my Warmoth '72 Thinline loaded with Lollar'Trons: I'd like to tell you the story of how I turned it into what it is now: TRIPLE'TRON. I wasn't entirely certain that a third pickup would fit without exposing the route, but some quick and dirty measurements and little scientific guesswork left me with high hopes. It was pretty clear that the pickguard mounting screw between the pickups would have to go. I didn't want an empty hole there, so I contacted Mary at Terrapin Guitars, from whom I have bought many pickguards over the years, and she made me one to Warmoth spec with a middle pickup route and no top/center mounting screw hole. I also bought another Lollar'Tron as it was equally critical to the project. By the way, three Lollar'Trons purchased a year or so apart does not qualify you for a bulk discount. A guy has to ask though. This shows exactly how much room I have to play with between the pickup frame and the edge of the pickguard. Plenty. I marked the location of the pickup mounting holes and used that to establish where I would start my route. I scored the finish with a razor blade to ward against finish chipping. I went ahead and drilled holes for the mounting screws all the way to depth. The screws are longer than the floor of the route is deep and will need a place to recess. You can also see where that pickguard mounting screw hole is in relation to where we are working. I prepared the body for routing by applying blue painters tape and then layering double-sided tape on that. A router template was then affixed to the double-sided tape. Yeah, it's a spring cavity template, but it fit the bill. And 30 minutes of sheer terror later: Here is the pickup situated in its new berth. Seems a very comfortable fit. The little guy in the red circle is the evidence of the time the router tried to kill me. Well, one of the times. It was more exciting than what it looks like. And the final fit check: route vs pickguard. Looks good! The pickguard is wired up with a Strat 5-Way and a push/pull that adds the neck pickup to position 1 and 2, turning Bridge and Bridge+Middle into Bridge+Neck and All-Three respectively. While I find the CTS DPDT push/pulls to be a bit of a pain to work with, these SPST units are really sweet. Simple but effective and perfect for an application like this one. Three Trons is a pretty good look... I had to enlarge the pickup mounting screw recess holes a bit to give myself some play, but otherwise the pickguard went on with no more futzing than usual. Feast your eyes upon: TRIPLE'TRON! I'm really thrilled with the results. The highlight so far is the All-Three option. Man it is a beautiful, round, bell-like sort of thing that just slays me. I have a Strat wired similarly and the All-Three option there is just OK. Here, it is straight magic. I intend to capture some audio samples, I will post them when I do. Thanks for following along!
