Hi folks,
As the title says, looking gor inspiration to move from a strat body to a LP body. Is there an adaptor or riser?

I'd fix the pickup cable somehow or put something in between the cable and the guitar surface. The nitro-cellulose lacquer of a Gibson LP will get microscopic scratches as the cable rubs agsinst it. After some time (a year or so) it gets visual and is really difficult to polish away.
But I got more gear than I need...and I like it!

I wonder how long before Gibson are marketing instrument with Murphy Lab inflicted GK pickup wear - that must be a £/$/Euro 1000 extra!!!
