The pickguard maker app on the Warmoth site works great. You can pick what pickup holes you want, delete the switches. Then when you get the pickguard drill your own hole for the toggley

Has anyone tried Gotoh 3 barrel saddles? I just got some and I’m curious to know if they would fit this plate without enlarging the holes for the intonation screws.
