    From my 68 tele - bought new, changed the p/u to a humbucker right away, never used the original neck p/u.

    Changed the pickguard, put the original p/u back last year and it doesn't work, no ohms showing, was in storage since new untouched.

    Probably was bad when purchased or maybe that was the reason I changed it - don't remember, is almost 50 years.

    How much is a blown 68 p/u worth and why bother doing a rewind when there's better stuff out there now ?

    Still has value, esp for those wishing to complete a vintage guitar. Check wires around the eyelets, if break is there, could be an easy fix, by just resoldering, or unwrapping 1 wind to do so. If break deeper in coil, would need full rewind, but still worth something to vintage guys.

    It's worth some $ as is. Check eBay and Reverb.
