    So, rather than get too fiddly I opted to do the "bathtub" routing that I understand Fender uses for the factory jobs. Here's the first pics of a work in progress:

    I still haven't decided on the final wiring scheme (and the pickup hasn't been delivered yet), but yeah, it's a-comin'.

    The lipstick pickup arrived today. I've got it screwed into the pickguard and I'm likin' how it looks next to the chrome neck pup.

    I decided to go with the standard Nashville wiring (position 3 is neck+bridge, the rest like a StRat). The Oak Grigsby half-superswitch has been ordered and I'm expecting it around the end of the week. Then it's off to the races!

    I'm holding off on more pics until it's all done.

    She's on life-support to keep her in stasis until the transplant organ arrives.
