Hello folks! Here's something I managed to finish up this early afternoon before the floods came. It's an insert for a humbucker in a 7 string body. It was originally routed out for Phase II Blackouts for a customer. Unfortunately I didn't catch a design change so we came up with an insert approach to fix the issue.

This insert comfortably fits inside the Phase II rout and nicely frames a regular 7 string humbucker. This insert is made of cocobolo. I put some bevels on it and I think it does the job quite nicely.

What are your thoughts?

I think you could sell that fix to heaps of people who want a certain guitar but don't like actives (and therefore active routes) thus enabling them to go passive!
Great idea!

Thanks. As I was making it some ideas came to mind. Obviously one of them was providing inserts to people that don't want actives anymore. I have another idea also which to my knowledge has never been done before. Next personal project I do will incorporate this idea.

Thanks though. Glad you liked it!
