I was looking at using the gold foil bass pup temporarily, but it's not single piece construction.
Comment by Where's Uranus? on July 6, 2014 at 5:42pm
I'd do that, if there was one anywhere near, one mans trash and all that, I could make some interesting mutants.

No matter, I was hoping for something lower than a regular strat pup, not as flat as the Viennese Flat Pups, are those P90 style soapbars lowish? AFAIK they just have the screws for the pole pieces poking out belw the base plate, ideally somethng about 10 - 12mm high at most.

they  sit   just a  bit  higher than    regular   pups  with a  bottom  bar    mag on them. 

if i  revealed all  my  sources  ..  id be working at   guitar center  ..

......... cleaning  floors  .   ;-)

Unnecessary bias ;)

Where did you get those 3 pole pups btw, and how high do they sit?
Comment by the anonymous pick on July 6, 2014 at 3:20pm

i  dont  get too  excited about  basses      in  general  .

Comment by Where's Uranus? on July 6, 2014 at 2:46pm

How come no-one gets excited about goldfoil bass pickups?

Comment by the anonymous pick on July 3, 2014 at 10:52pm

to  be clear ,  i  did  not  take apart  a teisco  to    do  this  ..  the  pups are  seperate  reproduction  parts  , and the mirror    name plate  is  custom  made from a  guy that makes  caketoppers  .   and the bod is a  knock off  strat    i  got  from lbl  .  the  rest  of the   parts and   neck are  from  a swamp witch familar   6  string model  .

if i  get  bored  .. ill  make anoher as a   6  ......  i wanted   a  3  .

Need to try another computer, no vid on this applecrap.

If you get bored you can always put back the saddles and machine heads and change the pickup spacing back to six string.

Which gives me another idea, need to get sone tools ;)
