Maybe someone has a 62ri p/up lying round to post a few pics of backside to compare with?
I doubt it but I'd like to know this as well. Seems strange that a quality pickup like the '62 RI would crap out after only a couple of years.
Update: My friend has decided to go with a set of Nordstrand NPJ4SE pickups so I'll be replacing both of them. IMO, that's like putting a Ferrari engine in a Chevy, but to each their own!
