Custom Melody Maker Pickup

Posted by Martin A Smith on

Really enjoy doing unique one-offs like this - a replacement bridge pickup for a 60s Gibson Melody Maker, the owner felt the original was too bright and thin.

To make this I sourced an original cover, modified a strat bobbin to fit and made a custom baseplate.

Using long A5 magnets and wound to about 10k it has a lot more punch and a thicker, raunchier sound than the original.
