Well they sounded dark and muddy in the last Hondo I had... In this guitar the bridge pup was a lot louder than the neck pup... I have a nice low-wind PAF-clone to go in the bridge spot so it balances a little better than what it had.
that's the one that your putting on the LP ? thanks for the pic !
I think I found the previous owner of my guitar:
About a million years ago, I did photography. I frequented a coffee shop that had bands/poets/spoken word, etc. I remembered taking pics of this guy one night for him, and then once I printed these, I never saw him again. ???
Anyway this was 93/94, so the guitar was fairly new still. I remember it sounding good at the time, he was playing mostly clean with some echo/reverb and reciting his poetry. *cough*damn hippies*cough*
Just taking a break buffing mine out and thought I’d dig these out to share.
And I don’t know why they’re all sideways. ???
My 2 single coils read 7.8, 7.45 and the bridge was 16.2K. No wonder it was so much louder... the new bridge pup I have is 7.6K. That should match a LOT better.
Are the covers on these, glued on, or are mine that filthy that they’re stuck? Ewww...
If they are horizontal in your computer's picture file, copy into Paint and then resize them down about 25% and save/repost as a second image. I've tried to post big photos and it did the same thing to me until I reduced the image size.
My suggestion would have been to build the area back up with epoxy, reshape it, give the guitar a light sanding, spray it with one or two coats of white, clear and wet sand. Good to see that your methods are working for you though!
I have never had mine out of the 2 guitars I have with this pickup combination and the leads are too short to pull them out enough to try to open one. Looking forward to learning what you discover. This E6 MIJ guitar has the same pickups.
I’m on my 7-days-on stretch of my job, so not as much time to work on it. I did manage to get the pickups apart, they were just so dirty they didn’t want to come apart. I thought maybe they were epoxy potted or something, but no. I’ll clean these up so the pole pieces aren’t so corroded.
I’m still buffing out the body, it’s going slower than I hoped it would. But it’s gonna look a lot better when it’s done.
Wet sanding the covers with 2500
I wonder why they used these odd pups, instead of standard Strat pickups that they must already had buckets of?
Good progress. I also wondered that about these due to the odd shaped bobbins. A set of Lace Sensors will fit right in, but pricey.
geez man! did you bludgeon someone to death with this thing!?
Stupid setback time I got the corrosion off the pole pieces, and the covers nice and shiny (so they’d match the brand-new bridge pup I have) and when I went to reinstall the covers, it ripped the leads off
Anybody got any pups like these that they want to get rid of?
I had 2 sets of those pickups but I sold them to another member here a few months ago.
Keep up the good work!
That's pretty strange. So the blue-green coil wrapping tape stuck out past the edges of the bobbin? Or did the bottom edge of the cover catch and tug the wires?
