I've finally ordered a k&k pure mini pickup from Jon Press in Bristol. Are there any points I need to consider when installing it in my L325 cedar topped beauty? I'm thinking of the bracing pattern and the split bridge as being a little off the usual path.
Any suggestions or pointers will be gratefully received.
I fitted one to my D300B with little hassle and am pleased with the results. It's a bit vague, sticking these three little pads under the bridge from inside the guitar but it isn't that precise a science anyway. I think one of the plus points of this pickup is that it is independent of saddle design as you line the sensors up with the bridge pins to aim for a balance across the strings.
Yes I had to enlarge the strap button hole very slightly - not really on the outer edge of the guitar. I used a round file and just worked at it gently - it really didn't need much. I got a gold plated ferrule for the jack socket from ebay for not very much which improves the look. In fact I also have a totally gold plated socket also from ebay that looks a lot nicer still that I must get round to fitting - it has a kind of coarse threat that screws directly into the strap button hole meaning no nut needed inside.
Thanks both for the replies. The k&k from Jon has a gold 'button' already attached - it'll match the neck strap button and the tuners. Will have to wait until next week to try fitting. The match looks good though it may need just a little "glass paper on a pencil" .
I'll let you know how it goes and perhaps post a recording link.
