I was digging through my work bench in the garage the other day and came across the pickups from an old Harmony 02815. The guitar had been used as a parts donor for my box guitar years ago, but the pickups have been sitting in a box. They’re odd, slightly narrower than a strat PU, with a metal base plate, staggered poles but no bottom bobbin, and what looks like a rubberized magnet. Well, the only guitar I have with strat style pickups is my duo sonic, and since there’s no band practice or gigs coming up, I found myself with a unique opportunity to mess with this guitars sound for fun. So I pulled out the original electronics, soldered up a whole new harness to make this a simple “swap everything” change over. Gotta say, they sound MUCH better in the duo than they did in the original Harmony. The Harmony has both pickups always on, with a master tone and volume, and the resulting sound was pretty lifeless and boring. In the Duo Sonic, they sound bright and full. Decent strat like tones, with a little more spank. I presume because of the metal baseplates. Only complaint, I need to switch the leads on one of the pickups, because the middle position is out of phase, giving a very thin & nasally tone. Kinda cool, but pretty useless. I’m going to make a video once I get around to it, I’ll post it here when I do.
