    Exactly, would like to get it back to factory he routed out all three spots where the pickups sit instead of three individual routed holes there is one big square. The pick guard does cover it when it is all together but there's 5 pickup slots cut in the pick guard he put in the standard three an added two humbucker. And the other thing is paint really isn't to much of a problem all the work needed to be done would be under pick guard not visible. So I guess all I had to say was yes I'd like to get it as close to factory as possible lol. If you want might be easier to talk on phone kind of hard to explain things n text so if you want talk or have any other questions my cell is 813-843-4529 my name is mike thanks for listening hope you can help. Mike. An like I said I'm in Brandon off 301 near crosstown (Leroy selmon)

    You mean just to fill in the body where he routed it out? The pick guard doesn't cover it or it does and you just want it back to as close to factory built as you can get it?

    It's technically possible but wouldn't be much fun and would probably be very tough to match up the paints after the work was completed. I would think it'd be pretty obvious at the end of the day. Perhaps I'm not following 100% though.

    Hey tm I was surfing around looking for some advise on guitar repairs if it's even possible. That strat you built was very impressive to say the least. I'm from Tampa area an problem is I traded a car for a strat few years ago didn't realize at the time nor did he that it was a 1971 with a maple neck very rare an it's the antique white also couldn't figure out what year until recent because I didn't want to take the neck off to check. I finally did an saw it was a 71. Here's The problem when I took off pick guard someone prior to me didn't know what they had an routered out the pickup area to soup it up an add more pickups i guess,I was sick when I saw this. . So bottom line is wondering IF it can be repaired I would really like to have it done I want to hang on to it not selling it. The neck alone is worth twice what the car was. So if you have any ideas or if you could point me in right direction that would be awesome. Thanks mojo
