New pickup on the way for the '64 MM
Posted 08 April 2012 - 03:38 PM
So now, after several months of back-and-forth via email, Facebook and phone, it'll be on it's way tomorrow.
I'm only replacing the bridge pickup, since I quite like the Neck pickup. The neck pickup reads 7.15K, and the bridge is only 7.27K, which is kind of underpowered relative to the neck.
So we've developed a modified P90. No cover, modified baseplate, and modified mounting tabs. Output is 8.49K, much more balanced. Set me back $120 including s/h.
P.S. I should also mention that I'm getting a new pickguard and transferring the current harness (less the bridge pickup) over to the new PG, which will be routed for the new pickup. I'm not cutting up a 48 year-old pickguard.

Yeah, Wolfe's a really cool guy to boot. He even turned on his shopcam so I could Watch my pickup being wound. He always triple-checked to make sure everything would work, and was extremely patient when the payment took a little longer than expected to get there. A real class act.
Not to mention the guy likes swords, knives, Doctor Who and racing expensive cars. What's not to like?
