it looks like a bunch of people have used that or VERY similar even saw em on utube sound ok to me i would add a .022 uf tone cap on it google shows very simple install instruction now you can cut highs and fill middle with a bit o bass. orange caps like single coil in .022 most common strat cap or a .047 for lower treble fatter top mid and bottom hope that mite help you, Slim

i've bought a couple from Suntekstore uk,and a fully loaded 'strat' pick guard (which i stripped for the parts) £11 ish.

they work fine..

 

I use one of these on my main CBG. and it works great.

So, I'm at the bar last night, and I'm talkin' it up with this hot Chinese chick.

I lean over and whisper in her ear, "Lets go home to my place for a little 69".

She looks at me with this big smile and sez,

"I love Beef and Broccoli".

(Sorry could not resist)

Enjoy.

 

Thank you, Keni! You just saved my day!

 

OP: I'll give it a try. It costs literally nothing.

Hi all.

I just got one of these on ebay for my first attempt at a build. I thought buying a pre wired rig would save me some time, bad language and burnt fingers. However, when I tested it the jack was dead. A while spent looking at wiring diagrams and checking everything with a multi-meter led me to a wire which had been soldered to the wrong terminal on the volume pot. All seems to be well now and my burns aren’t too bad but I think I may solder up my own rigs in future. I can’t tell you how it sounds as the glue is still setting up on my guitar.

That was probably because the Chinese solder from right to left instead of left to right.

Hi Janne, bought one on eBay from Hong Kong a white one from SZdepot88 for 5.79 GBP. Does not work as it's wired wrong.

Complained and received a voucher for 7.00 US dollars so all in all not a a bad deal for the money. Stublecol has one he rewired and fitted to his home made dog bowl guitar with a slight mod and seems very happy with it. All the best mate, Chris. :)

I just got 4 more from suntekstore 4,5 euros each.Hope those work...

pickup is not bad at all - pots are sub par and so is the pickup ring. some of these also seem to have a lot of hum that I have a hard time gettting rid of unless I shield the entire inside of the box. Still Worth $5 bucks for just the pickup alone though.
