Can someone please verify details on the MIJ So Cal route underneath the pickguard? Will it take tall ceramic pickups?

Basically I'm looking to pick one up. I've had a shitter of a time with my San Dimas over the years, having to modify the very shallow routes to take ceramic mags. I assume that, because the pickups on the So Cals are mounted on a pickguard, it's got a much deeper route underneath?

Toshiro? *******? Other superstrat enthusiasts?

MIJ MIA or MIM? or all of them?
MIJ

The USA looks like standard depth to me, dunno about the others. :lol:
What do you mean by 'standard' depth? The route in the San Dimas is abysmally shallow. Basicaly, if you put a ceramic pickup in there, it's way too tall and touches the strings (assuming you can even get the strings on, it's that tall!)

Right on, that looks like it could take a ceramic no problem. Cheers dude. Think I'm gonna pull the trigger on one...
