Thread: Albert Lee body routing question?

    Question Albert Lee body routing question?

    Are all Albert Lee's routed the same? I'm in the market for an SSS configuration; if I were to buy one with 3 MM90's, would it be a simple matter of switching out the pickguard with the MM90's and dropping in a pickguard with the SSS's?

    What about an AL with HH config? is it the same under the pickguard as the SSS or MM90x3?

    Thanks!

    No the routings at routing as for that pickup configuration I do believe. The HH is routing for the HH only.

    GWD is correct. Each pup configuration is routed just for that configuration...

    Thanks, gentlemen! I was hoping to maybe pick up a not-exactly-what-I-want AL and make it what I want with a minimum of hassle (no permanent alterations). Back to the hunt for my ideal AL unicorn!

    Hoping to find a pinkburst SSS with piezo... BFR inlay on the 12th would be nice as well.

    At this point unless I happen across a deal I just cannot pass up, I'll cross my fingers for a really tasty PDN offering and pray Big Poppa will be gracious enough to offer the piezo option again...
