    Dude. You're, like, six-foot 20. And easily pissed off. No one's going to say she-it.

    I will play!

    Ok, my guess: you are donating the "organs" from the SAS to the NF3. I say this because the NF, with the longer scale, is more of a strat platform. From there, you are adding either a Floyd or filling in the trem cavity and doing a hardtail. Might be wayyyy off....but that is my guess!

    I love threads like this one. Will be interesting to see how the route for the neck pickup is managed.

    I went to bed last night dreaming up a new PTC project. It's addictive.

    I have been most curious about installing the NF in the neck of the SAS. On a SASNF, since the pickup rout is not set as deep into the body, they had to have a little extra wood on the back. Like this:



    So, what's the PTC going to do to allow the neck to be properly mounted with enough support, yet still fill in the gap on the front remaining from converting from a full size humbucker to a NF?
