    Default Single Coil Direct Mount

    Hey everyone.
    Has anyone tried to direct mount a single coil pickup? If yes, do you need to do anything to the route or is there enough space to direct mount already
    Thanks everyone

    What kind of guitar are you doing this with?

    But yeah, if the guitar is routed for a single coil you should have no problem direct mounting it. In the past I've bought pickup foam, thrown some under the middle of the pup, and just use some wood screws direct into the body. No biggie.

    I've done it, but without the foam. Seems to work fine, but mine was a crappy guitar I put together with spare parts.

    Just a strat style guitar. I just wanted to make sure it would fit without additional work. Thanks Jedi
