Seeing as how the top layer of this guitar is only 5/8" thick where the neck pickup goes and with the other layers stepping back for upper fret access routing 3/4" deep for a standard Tele neck pickup seemed like flirting with disaster. I've got a pair of Gold Foils like Maricopa is using which will fit the bill since they're surface mounts at only 1/4" thick, but they are in real rough shape. Seems the guitar got wet and everything was rusted, the magnets are in pieces and the coils, while intact and reading 5.58k ohms (or 5.54 k, nice display on the meter), need to be wrapped. And I just didn't like the way they looked on the guitar. So I made a bobin out of heavy paper, and slipped the coil on it. Wrapped it with some tape and wired it up to the core. Went to the hardware store and scored some little button head screws wich will work for the pole pieces.
