Standard size mini-buckers will need an opening of 29mm/ 1&1/8" x 68mm/2&7/8". The Snake Oil mini-buckers that C.B.Gitty sells are a bit larger and longer. The dimensions are on the website. 

Love mini-buckers, especially real deal Firebirds. I know a couple of winders that make real deal Firebird pickups if that's what your looking for.

I like the pickguard looks like minibuckers will drop right it without any modifications.
Comment by Paul Craig on October 10, 2017 at 2:56pm

You  could sell the pickguard loaded with all the bits and use the money to fund your build. Just do a template of the guard first.

Lots of mod options out there.

What's the ohm reading of the pups now?

Comment by Paul Craig on October 9, 2017 at 4:42pm

It could be that the magnets have lost some charge over the years. a re-charge will fix that.

If they work, I wouldn't rewind them. They are probably worth more than the guitar in original spec.

Comment by Mr.C on October 9, 2017 at 4:33pm
I'll crack it open in the near future clean check out all the electrical if the output sucks still replace the magnet and rewind them
