Ok, this one is a bit of a rare bird. The ARP Avatar was a bit of a failed synth in the 70’s that had a hexaphonic guitar pickup. Someone spliced a 7 pin connector on the end in place of the original connector. This is good because cables and actual ARP synths are rare and expensive.
With this 7 pin connector you can use a “breakout box” from a company called Ubertar which will allow you to use it. There is no spring so you will need to shim it up close to the strings.


I got it originally for my Page #3 replica as I was going whole hog in details and the ARP pickup was responsible for the holes behind the bridge pickup ring. Times have changed and someone should have fun with this.

$150 USD shipped to US and C

Normally the wire is routed under the strings behind the bridge and was screwed into the body under the pickguard which is why Page’s pickguard on #3 is jacked up past the bridge pickup ring.
