    Seymour Duncan Triple Shot - 1 Pickguard Mod

    Howdy,

    I've gotten some questions about how I installed a SD TS-1 pickup ring on a Strat pickguard, so I'm going to post some pix here so folks can reference it.

    The ribbon cable for the TS does not properly route past the Strat pickguard, and the poorly made connections will break off very easily.

    So I traced the pickup ring on the pickguard, drill pressed a slightly smaller hole than I needed, then used a small sanding drum followed by some freehand sanding with fine grits to make it look nice. The outcome is far less exotic looking than the example solutions I got from SD.

    Hey, thanks, I'm coming here, from your reply, at Amazon. (Doug) So, it seems like the problem is from the ribbon, coming down, into the cavity, and you have to gouge out space, directly under the ring? But then, you cant see it, right? Seems doable. How do you like the height of the rings, and the height of the pups, when installed? Did you put the switches on the bottom, the pots side of the strings?

    Haha--I don't know if I would use the word "gouge" But yes, you've got it. Make sure you trace the ring onto the pickguard and then keep the "gouge" within that, otherwise you will see it. The height of the rings and pickups is fine for me, and I haven't gotten any complaints from the player. The switches are on top, opposite side than the other controls. I don't have that one here anymore, so I can't snap any specific photos, but here are some I took (zoom in at the ring). Looks like I took these before I set it up, as it doesn't have all the screws in place, and the SC's look a bit hinky. I don't remember any trouble with setting it up. Its a flat mounted Floyd Rose on modified Yamaha body and neck, but I didn't do anything special to the pocket other than angle the neck with shims to get the geometry right for the Rose. Meaning, it has a bit low clearance, but that works find with the ring.
