Help with my jerrycaster...

Postby Tony6Strings » Sat May 25, 2013 9:09 pm

I've got an Ibanez Roadstar II strat type that I want to turn into a jerrycaster. It will be a bare bones type of build, no obel or anything. I'm going to wire it like a strat, except with only one tone and with three mini toggles to split the pickups. I've got a Super Distortion (going in the midde) and a PAF(neck, both early vintage I'm guessing late 70's) and can hunt down another SD for the bridge. The body of the guitar has already been routed with a swimming pool style route. Basically all I'm missing is a pickguard. That's where I'm at a loss. How am I supposed to find a pickguard for this thing that will fit three humbuckers? What are my options? I think I recall reading on one of the threads that you can take a SD and basically half it, ending up with two single coils. I'd rather keep my pickups whole and figure out something for a pickguard, but I'm not ruling it out entirely. Any suggestions?
