Re: pickup modification video


Interesting. I think I'd rather install a push/pull coil split instead of removing screws from the pickups but that's just me.

Re: pickup modification video


That also what I thought but besides it being noiseless I wonder if there's any tone advantage.

Also removing those screws would probably affect the wax inside the humbucker.

Re: pickup modification video


That guy doesn't get around the web much--old trick.
Does sound cool, though.
An easier mod is to dump in a Tele pickup with adapter ring.

Agreed, this has been done for a long time by the blues guys. An EJ custom bridge model will sound similar without needing an adapter.

Removing the pole pieces won't affect the pickup at all. It's totally safe..........
