This body features a vintage-accurate pickup rout depth of 5/8" (15.88 mm), and will only accommodate pickups made to vintage depth. Pickups with a modern 3/4" (19mm) depth will not fit. This includes vintage-looking pickups with a magnet or plate attached to the bottom. To ensure compatibility, measure your pickups carefully.
The tremolo rout in back also features a vintage-accurate depth of 5/8" (15.88mm), and will only fit spring and claw assemblies made to vintage spec.
