Will a Tele Custom pickguard cover a regular Tele control rout?

    Hey all,

    I have a "regular" Tele body (with regular routing for the 3-way switch, tone and vol knob) on it's way.

    Ideally I would like to turn it into a Tele Custom with a rout for a WR H/B in the neck and routing for "Les Paul" controls.

    My question is this - is a Tele Custom pickguard big enough to cover the regular Tele control rout?

    Thanks

    Not sure if this would work out well. You might be better off buying a custom body, and starting from fresh. Just my 0.02¢

    Yes it does.
    I did exactly this to my CV50 to turn it into a Custom

    Just before I saw your response I went on to the Warmoth site, found a TC pickguard pdf and printed out a full size one out.

    Works a treat!

    Thank you
