Help Needed:Prestige, RG Humbucker Pattern for Routing

Hi All, I cant seem to find this anywhere and was hoping someone can help.

I am looking for the dimensions for the direct mounted humbucker cavity as found on a lot of prestiges. The cavity sizes I have access to are bigger than the prestige style.

I need someone to fill in the blanks please or point me to somewhere I can get this info from.

Thanks for your help (and excuse the ms paint mad skillz)

Re: Prestige, RG Humbucker Pattern for Routing

You spent time with Ms paint doing that...darn...try using a vectorial graphics prog next time, you better look out for ur hands. It looks pretty good. If I were you I'd PM those who have plenty of prestiges. Do a forum search and look at the members post regarding prestige guitars. Many senior members have lots of those and surely know. For example Rich who sells guitars.

Heh, thanks man, I only have MS Paint on my work PC

Yeah, I thought that it would be a little more polite to initially go public with the question before pestering people via PM......for now haha

Re: Prestige, RG Humbucker Pattern for Routing

can't you just find out the length of the pickup mounting holes and adjust that picture to fit and try using that on a blank piece of scrap wood and adjust it if needed

Do what I did, trace a DiMarzio base plate.

Re: Prestige, RG Humbucker Pattern for Routing

Thanks guys, Yeah, those are good options. I'm guess I'm just quite picky and like to have my builds (few that there are) as close to manufacturers spec as possible.

But yeah, baseplate trace time

Thanks
