Covering Pickup Routes

Recommended Posts

Fill them in, otherwise you risk puncturing the veneer. it doesnt have to be a perfect fit, just try to minimalize the area of unsupported veneer (parts where is isnt glued to anything)

cut a piece of wood about the size of the pickup routs, glue down sand flush, fill the rest with wood putty if you wish, it wont be necessary though

C'mon nitefly, don't you know better than to recomend that someone uses wood putty to fill anything by now?

nothing head: you're better off filling the routes with tightfitting wooden blocks and filling the gaps(assuming you don't get a perfect fit) with bondo. As for universal jems, a lot of the people on this site use it. Universaljems.com is used primarily to fund the running of this forum and its sister site.

i use that all the time, great stuff

any way my stupidity aside, fill your pickup routs with glued-in wooden blocks, as close to the same size as the route as possible, then fill the rest with the 2 part bondo available at almost any harware store.
