All I will add is that I think you would prefer your seller taking a little longer to pack and ship properly since you're talking about an acoustic guitar. The alternative --him rushing to ship without packing it properly-- would probably end up being even more disappointing.
Here's your body compared with another Squier Cali Series body.... it indeed looks like the holes are about 1/8" back too far:
You could always fill those and redrill the mounting holes in the correct position. Or..... perhaps you could get a custom pickguard made to fill that gap, and then...
As a longtime Rush fan, I've grown to love and appreciate Geddy's vocals more and more over the years. Seriously: you can't have The Temples Of Syrinx without Geddy's screeching vocals.... I mean, the priests of the temples ARE freaking aliens for cryin' out loud -- Geddy's voice makes it real...
Just my opinion, but while it's in MJT's hands I'd seriously consider having them refinish that in a cool color of your choice instead of attempting to fix a bad relic job.
If anyone can fix a poor relic job they can, but if any guitar merited a refinish it's that Strat. And I mean spray over...
Yes, they are potted (unless ordered specifically unpotted, Pete pots all his pickups). And the DCR readings for these with my multimeter are just under the number on the backs (like 5.9, 5.9, and 6.0 ~ negligible with temp diff).
Spiffy work there @simoncroft !
This just occurred to me -- the location of the "BOSS" logo on the pickup covers is just like old EMG single coils:
So maybe those are a BossAxe emulation of active pickups like EMGs.... maybe.
