Threw a WickedBucker on a beat up box and am getting some great tones. Thanks to Marty Tauber (and Gitty) for putting out those pickups, I enjoyed not having to deal with the stress of cutting out a pickup hole on the box. Basic build with the usual hiccups but as always, a lot of fun.

Thanks for the kind words, gents.  Already thinking of the next use of this pickup because... my new order has arrived.

I hear ya Brother. Those Marty Tauber Wicked Buckers are wonderful pickups. I like the brass covers. They don’t dent as easy as the copper.

Another great, simple build! I finished one not wholly dissimilar to this  almost immediately on receipt of my first wickedbucker too- who needs holes when you've got those tones?
