Which pickup is that?
Super cool axe!
I call mine 'violet'. That's the stamp on the pots.
I have a '64 (?)
A little mellower ...
It's a humbucker sized P90 (supposedly). I've tried it just slid under the strings and it sounds better than the black soap bars I had in there earlier.
I think it's a Dragonfire H90. It measures about 7.1k Ohms.
I never meant for this project to be the never-ending, tone chasing, time robbing affair it has become. I'd like to just slap a pickup, pickguard and controls on it and play it.
Selling the soapbars, buying some PAF's for a HSH setup with the H90 in the middle. Seems like the best way to resolve the pickup height issue.
With three humbucker rings, I could mount three Surf 90's if the guitar proves worthy.
Maybe I could remove 1/4" from the bottom of the neck pocket? Would the body wood still hold?
Yesterday I drilled out the 3mm holes in the lipstick tube pickups so that a #6 wood screw would go through. I'm planning on mounting them directly to the body Jaguar style. I'm also thinking that I'm going to build up the body with some plywood scrap for a parquet floor look on the top. Rout and sand the edges and finish with a traditional tobacco burst finish.
