I have checked Jason Lollar's and Pete Biltoft's websites for Charlie Christian style pickups and both seem to require a pickguard to cover the body rout cavity and mounting screws.

I have seen some builds here which were top mounted on figured laminated top bodies without pickguards and they seem to fit snugly like P90 soapbars.

Any pointers here please ?

I'm confused, can you add a link to the build(s) you're referring to?

Can't seem to find the link on this forum but he made two Teles, both brownish woody color, with Charlie Christian pups.  He also linked himself playing the guitars on YouTube.

You should PM him, he might have custom routed for the Christians, had to tell from that vid.
