Hi-Flyer Pickups: Eastwood = Univox?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Din Of Win, Sep 7, 2013.


  1. Hi all,

    I just picked up a SWEET '74 Univox Hi-Flyer. Unfortunately, a previous owner put in some janky Gretsch pickups.

    I was wondering if anyone knew if Eastwood's Hi-Flyer pickups would be a drop-in fit with the Univox cavity?

    If not, could someone maybe measure their Eastwood's pickup dimensions for me? I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I contacted Eastwood directly, and they didn't know :(

    I believe that the Univox guitars & basses are yet another Matsumoku-made brand. So you might try searching the Matsumoku fan sites for more info:

  5. So, it looks like the Eastwoods are not a true-drop-in.

    Another person also speculated that the P90's Univox Hi-Flyer had different routes than the Humbucker Hi-Flyer.

    So, i'm taking the original pickups to a local guy (who is expensive :( ) to see if i can salvage them.
