    490R / 498T appreciation thread

    One reads so much about the 490r/498t mis - match. It certainly isn't the case with the 490r/490t set

    Neighbor’s trees

    In this kind of situation I ask myself "what if the shoe was on the other foot?"

    Anyone tried an A2 bridge with an A5 neck?

    I have a Tokai Firebird which had Creamery vintage style Firebird mini humbuckers retro fitted. A5 in bridge and A2 in neck. The A5 has the higher DCR. Neck was really muddy and over powering, bridge was thin and ice picky to the extreme. I swapped them around with bridge set as high as...

    Tone riders and creamery pickups

    If anyone's still interested I've recently installed TR AIVs in a Fenix LPC copy. They are truly wonderful. Also I have Creamery vintage style fb in my Tokai fb. They were in it when I bought it. I swapped their positions as the bridge was really bright and neck very fat sounding. It was a...

    The First Carved (Arched) Top Solid Guitar.

    Whilst watching Rick Beato with his beautiful pale blue Les Paul I decided to Google this thread title. Got no immediate appropriate links so does anyone know? Was it the LP? Cheers.

    The Misleading Nature of DC Resistance in Regard to Pickup Coils

    Thanks. Your input is always interesting and educational. Thinking about it, it was a bit of a stupid question, sorry. Also I didn't consider the fact that Gibson would be using machines back then. I hope the A3 is a good one. May be I should ask the winder the source. The pickup is £75 and I...

    The Misleading Nature of DC Resistance in Regard to Pickup Coils

    Opinion if you don't mind pls. I'm soon to receive a handwound UK made Dogear P90. It's A3, unpotted , 42awg enamelled wire and nickel silver baseplate, 7.2K. It's supposed to be like the late 40s ones. It's for a laminated jazz box. Do you think it'll cut the mustard? Cheers

    Yet another pickup recommendation thread....

    I bought a Generator a while ago. That's good, a bit like an SDJB.

    Yet another pickup recommendation thread....

    You have to go for them!!!!! I've had some (Gold covers) for a couple of years and in lockdown finally got them installed in a Fenix Alpine White LP style guitar. Used 2 old Russian PIO from Jonesy and used 4 p/ps for split and each pup with coils in parallel. The tones are awesome. The splits...

    Broke a push/pull pot on my Florentine Pro

    I've wrecked normal pots where the knob has been impossible to remove. Also recently I thought I'd fried the switch on a p/p. I completely renewed a harness with 4 p/ps - two for split and two for parallel coils for each pup. When all was back together the neck vol. p/p wouldn't pull. With brute...

    Epiphone Serial No. Query

    Thanks Dr. That was my interpretation but a guess. I'm going to see it today. The JP pg is missing and JP TRC has been replaced with a blank. The guy wants £350 ($457 ?). Comes with a HSC which looks a little tatty. Cheers.

    Very best pickups you've ever heard or played.

    I've just installed some Tonerider A4s in a LP style guitar. They are truly awesome.

    Epiphone Serial No. Query

    Hi I searched a data base and it didn't recognise this serial number. S9206668 Also some web pages say the 9 is the year and the 06 the month, so what is the 2? Any help gratefully received. TIA.

    Firebird Replacement Pickups

    I have a Tokai FB which has aftermarket (not by me) Creamery FB minis. The bridge is A5 with higher DCR and neck is A2 with lower DCR. I've swapped them over, jacked up the A2 now in the bridge and dropped the A5 now in the neck. It's made a world of difference and smoothed the sound out. No...
