My latest custom build

Recommended Posts

I have to agree with @ezbass. I am a fan of Wilkinson pickups in general, very well made and sound far better than their price suggests. I found that their alnico bass pickup suited me better than the seymour duncan or dimarzio pickups I had in my Precision bass, for less than half the cost.

My main guitars are Vintage VZ99 Zips, a mongrel between Danelectro and les Paul junior, the weight of a feather but LP attitude. I thought I would need to strip and replace all the Wilkinson pickups and electrics when I bought my first one, but they are excellent pickups, good output and very responsive.

But you would need to go for 2 neck or 2 bridge pickups to make up the 3.


Although if it was just for the look, then you could leave the middle one unwired and go for a standard 2 pickup wiring maybe and not worry about balancing the 3 outputs.
