    My sister has this old pink yamaha guitar its very similar to an old strat. Any way my dad is an automotive painter, so he would be able to paint , and clear my new customized guitar. I want to do the classic stripe job. Since its a strat stlye it has a pickguard and annoying single pickups. First how do I replace the pickups but secure them in without using a pickguard, ill think ill get a zakk wylde pickup(yahoo squeal time!!!. Next do I have to take the neck off or can I just tape it so no paint gets in. One more is there any places where I can find pictures of eds striped guitar from all angles , back front sides, to help paint it correctly. Thanks I got all summer to work on it no SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    pickups can be screwed right into the body, and yes you do need to take the neck off.

    If the body's routed for a single coil, then route it for a humbucker. You'll have to cut the pickguard as well so there's a peice of it for the volume knob and switch selector to hold onto. The body's probably been routed to make a front cavity for the knobs so you can't rear load them.
    Also when you buy your new pickup make sure the mounting brackets are on the bottom of the pickup so it'll fasten solidly to the body.
