I used one of these on a recent telecaster build with highly figured wood. I didn't want to hide the awesome wood with a pick guard and this worked perfectly and fit perfectly with a standard Tele neck pickup.
I've been using these pickup rings on our guitars for a while now. I've had no issues with fit using Seymour Duncan or Amalfitano pickups. We love using these as an alternative to plastic rings and will continue to use them when requested.
I have used these on several strats, but have just had to accept the fact that you have to leave the pickups bare, with NO COVERS. The pickup mounting screw hole is so close to the center that the mounting screw head actually gouges into the plastic cover. (look at their pic- it's right at the edge of the opening, and you know how big the head is on a strat pickup screw)
Come to think of it, the holes aren't well spaced for use with pickups made from stewmac's single coil kit either. The holes on the pickup are spaced farther apart than the holes on this mounting ring, and they do not line up, so your screws end up pointing outward in order to thread in. these would be great if they'd move those screw holes out a little bit. That would solve both the problems I have had with them.
I have used these mounting rings on three Strat builds (rear rout). They aligned well with Seymour Duncan single coil pups and the single coil sized humbuckers. Check your pup cavity and ensure that the outside (left/right) dimensions will leave you enough wood for the mounting holes. Its a tight fit and no room for error. I actually used the mounting ring itself as a template before routing the cavities.
The mounting holes are off cannot use these rings on my strat, The mounting holes that mount the ring to the guitar body need to be farther apart.
