Members Annoying Twit Posted June 28, 2010 Members Share Posted June 28, 2010 Since my son wasn't using it, I did a trial pickup modification to his 1/2 sized Westfield guitar. I replaced the single humbucker with a Irongear Rolling Mill. Problem was, at the time I asked for something "mellow". The Rolling Mill is mellow, but either I've done something wrong with the wiring (seems a bit unlikely), or I should have replaced other components (pots, cap) to match the pickup, or the pickup is way, way, way too mellow for a 1/2 sized guitar. If you take the amount of mellowness difference between the bridge and neck pickup of my full sized LP copy, and then go about three times as far in the "mellow" direction, that's where the 1/2 sized guitar is. Is there a reasonably inexpensive pickup I could try which would have more treble and "bite". E.g. something that would lead to a sound more like my Yammie Pacifica 112v bridge humbucker sound? Note: As I'm experimenting, I don't want to, at this moment, buy a top flight pickup. (Sorry Bryan). I'm just experimenting with different sounds. Something in the Irongear range might do, or something similarly priced. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
