Leave those pickups alone! Paint it blue, to match the Jansen clone, then everything is likely to resolve itself.

You could just leave it alone and swap it for my Vox HDC-77, only because I have never owned an offset guitar and it would be nice to try one.

Nothing that requires routing.
Haven’t heard anything good about foils that isn’t nostalgic rose tinted wank (originals were microphonic and awful etc).

Dimarzio make a huge range of p90 size HBs - perhaps one of those at the bridge.


I have gold foils in my Duesenberg- Slowy has heard them in action and they’re anything but microphonic or awful. Lots of companies other than Lollar making them. Mine are from Mojo Pickups UK.

Mini hums will fit with the standard surrounds- they’re a drop in replacement.

I’d look at options from Jess Loureiro and Q pickups too- they make great pickups for reasonable prices.

This is a very good option, Slowy. Those Voxs are great guitars.

Yes, that is a very generous offer. Switchable coils on the Vox will give you the lower-output sounds you want, as well as the standard humbucker.

What about just rolling back the volume knob?

I seem to recall my 6 coil pickup sounded good through the 4/12 Jansen. Could try it on the gat i suppose...

This is tempting but I remember the Vox's having ridiculously tiny necks.

Just makes it quieter.
