Bass pickup swapping tips

Postby MikeBass » Sat Dec 26, 2015 10:38 pm

Don't think I've ever posted in here before.
I'm finally diving into swapping my own pickups (going to start by putting some H50As in my LB70 with J99As and go from there) after years of being a Carvinite.

From what i gather, it's just three wires going to the right spots on the board. I remember reading something about the pickups sometimes becoming out of phase when changed, and tips/pointers from those of you who've done it? Thanks.

Haven't gotten around to it juuust yet, I still intend to though. Got a little sidetracked working on my pedalboard, I also just ordered a V59K

I'll definitely report back when I do.
