    Any recommendations for a Vendor to replace the baseplate on my vintage Gibson humbucker? I had previously had this base plate swapped but need a short leg plate.

    I just looked at them on mojotone.com if it helps.

    They are silver nickle and they have short leg as well.

    Yes, I've looked at those which seem to be Ok, but prefer someone to do a better job this time around on the pickup. I don't have those skill sets.

    Well... it's more than JUST that. It's the correct disassembling of the old one and the correct assembling of the whole p'up on the new baseplate too.

    As I say, it's not rocket science, but it's not for the complete unwary either, specially if it's a real vintage one.

    It's headed to Rewind to be reworked properly. An original Gibson 80's Dirty Fingers, zebra. I've been an amp builder for 9 years, but want this done professionally as I don't work on pickups.

    I have the pickup back from Rewind, and it was a fantastic job. My thanks to James for a quality job !!! An original Dirty Fingers from the 80's. Note the three magnets and no spacers or metal shims.

    Here are someone else's photos from off the web. Mine looked exactly like these photos when I bought this pickup brand new years ago. Note in these photos the dual leads and the three hole adjustment base.
