Pickguard problem, help needed!

Hi there

I'm in the process of trying to install a pickguard on to my RGR570, but I'm having some trouble!

I know some of you guys have done this, so I thought I'd ask for some tips.

I'm finding it hard getting the middle single coil to sit back in with the springs and I can't seem to screw it back down. Also the screws that hold the pick up selector in place don't seem to fit into the pickguard itself.

I thought this would be an easy mod, but I'm having second thoughts now...

Any help would be much apreciated!

Thanks in advance.

You need a rear routed pickguard. It has an oblong cutout for the 5 way and larger volume & tone pot openings.
