    Has anyone just routed out the area in between the bridge and neck pickups on an S2 so you could switch the selector to a 5-way and put like a strat middle in?

    Think it's a good idea?

    Do it!

    Fabulous idea that I've considered, but not followed through on.

    Ok, so I'm eventually going to do this. I have a Dimarzio True Velvet middle on order, and an extra pickguard, and will give this a shot and post pics when I'm done.

    @justmund did something similar I think? Though not a strat pickup. Haven't seen him in a while. He's Australian, and that continent is best known for its wide range of abilities to kill you.

    He popped in for a couple of posts last month (or August). I got an email from him a few weeks back. Busy making beer.

    But, you are correct, he did add a middle pickup to a two humbucker guitar. Can't remember if it was a DC-22?????
