    Hey guys i have a spare old İbanez GRS-200.

    I started to mod it recently.. visual, electronic..etc

    is it possible to cut body for creating space for a humbucker p-up ?

    Im thinking extending current J or P p'up space and putting a humbucker will be great

    i just moved to Stoke-on-Trent, UK

    if anyone knows a shop that can do it around my town please help me

    and dont hesitate to share you ideas :bag: :D
  2. Buy a router. Practice on a piece of scrap wood first. Score the finish around where the new cavity will be. Route the cavity and drill the hole for the wire.

  6. Possible? Yes. Easy? Not necessarily.

    If you don't already have the tools and a modicum of woodworking experience, you'll be ahead of the game (in both money and time) by bringing the GSR into a luthier to have the new pickup routing cut. Seeing that the Ibby doesn't have a pickguard, the new pup needs to be routed cleanly...not a job I'd recommend to a first-timer.

    yes, but dont try it unless u have some (good) woodwerkin skills.
    could be easy to mess it up and make it look sloppy. gl

    If you don't have the tools and the skill... Just sub the job out.
    Or practice on a scrape piece of wood a couple of times it's so easy screw up a bass. Good luck.
