thanks peeps.In all honesty the knife always feels like a rather crude way to do this... but it seems to work for me. it always starts off looking proper hokey though
i don't have a freezer big enough yet, but do freeze fender style stuff. I think I would still use the knife on a carved top for a bit of predictability
You'll be able to hear them against an original. I'm interested to hear how they compare.
nice update from @Mojopickups this morning
pickup deliveryand a quick test fit
My Youtube page
Possibly a stupid question but is/was there such a thing as a “dog ear’ staple? - I find myself wondering what these would be like in my Peerless ES295-a-like... :-)
yeah, some of the archtops had them. I am not sure if mojo has plans for dog ear covers/baseplates but he does had adjustable/unadjustable with different mounting hole locations. - that's 4 different cover styles already.. I am sure he will have considered dog ear too
So you have found your Holy Grail of pickups? How does the staple sound in the bridge. Gibson only had that on the big archtop jazz guitars.
It certainly works for me. I was worried I would be disappointed after waiting so long for these. I plan on doing some comparisons once I have the burst wired up.... but I will need to consider some of the variables. The old staple has the magnets set quite a bit higher, from the coil for one. None of the guitars are set-up with similar pickup heights yet etc... The neck pickup is definitely in the same ball park, but has a bit more clarity than the vintage example.
