Would drilling a screw through the trem cavity cause any problems?

    I recently replaced a P90 sized pickup on my Talman with an aftermarket one and the original P90 was pickguard mounted and the mounting plates wouldn't match the newer P90.

    I asked a local tech to drill the holes as he is making a new pickguard for me and the bridge P90 had to be drilled through the back cavities because there isn't enough wood to mount it otherwise. I don't really mind the method because I deck this guitar but I was just wondering if this would cause any feedback problems or anything like that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nope. It's just an esthetic thing. Can't be any worst than the hole I routed through the back of Olic.
    Lol carefully and you'll see the back of the pickup through the hole along with the middle for the shadow tuner.

    Great to know, awesome guitar btw, definitely has that "hot rod" vibe.

    You should see the rest. Lol That metal paste on the bottom horn was inside my leg for a year too.
