Humbucker pick up

Started this discussion. Last reply by Richard Dean yesterday. 3 Replies

Hello again! A friend was kind enough to give me a 6 string humbucker pick up. Has anyone used one on a 4 stringer? If so were there any issues to be aware of? Thank you for the great input! Continue

CboxGypsy replied to Scott's discussion 4 string neck width
"The standard 1.5 is enough, especially when you think of the distance between strings on a six string. Now someone did once tell me that you could widen the distance between the strings at the bridge for fingerpicking, but I never tried it. "

Poor_Richard replied to Scott's discussion 4 string neck width
"neck width is personal prefference, there is no golden rule. Iḿ a lowender and on my 4-stringed BC Rich Warlock neck width is 42mm, on my daughters 4 stringer and a Höffner shorty it's only 40mm"

"I use 42 mm (1 3/4"), but 1 1/2" will work fine if you are OK with a slightly closer string to string spacing."
