    NEEDS PICs





    A '57 Classic, MIJ from USA parts.
    HCEG Existentialism: I buy guitars, therefore, I am.
    Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
    I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

      Went ahead and ordered some Dimarzio EJ Custom pickups with nickel covers. I'm not normally a big fan of Dimarzios, but after some research these seem to fit the bill nicely as far as sound, appearance, fit, price, etc. Another forum member mentioned that these pickups worked nicely in their Corsair.



      After closely measuring, it appears the stock bridge pickup is Duncan trem-spaced (52.6mm) & the neck is standard Duncan spacing (49mm). For the Dimarzios, I opted for an f-spaced bridge (51mm) & standard neck (48mm). Seems those will fit nicely.



      I bought them from Guitar Center online. They currently have $15 off a $75 purchase. The nickel covered versions like I bought are $79.95 each. I did two separate orders to get the coupon applied to each pickup, so they ended up $64.95 each. About 20% off. Not bad. Plus, MrRebates has 6% for Guitar Center.

              Wait, did I miss a big sale on these?



              If so, how much were they going for?
              I didn't come here to save whales, I came here to get laid and make rock 'n' roll

                      They were at $442 for awhile on Amazon. Then late one night there was an additional 15% off for maybe an hour or so. I bought during that time and got this one for $375.

                          I've got a $390.73 PM for a Walnut Bigbsy that's still good. They are out of stock, but might be worth the wait.



                          I have another for $453.29 for a Gloss Black w/ Bigsby

                              Your avatar says you live in Indiana - the intonation issues may be related to the guitar's exposure to lots of cold during shipping. Saddle adjustments aren't a huge deal, but I'd let that neck settle before making truss rod adjustments.
