    Just got myself an early 90's boner, but one of the split neck pickups is faulty.

    Which pickup should I look at replacing it with and should I replace all 3 pickups?

    Would like to keep authentic but understand originals might be hard to come by.

    Note, I'm in OZ.

    Appreciate any help I can get. Thanks Me

    Where is OZ?

    Well; the first question is WHAT is wrong with the PU?
    If it has a shortcut within the coil there is no help but rewiring ...
    Maybe it's a minor fault? Only one of the "big" connecting wires?
    Have you tried the reason with a multimeter?

    Australia is commonly referred to as "OZ". :)

    The stock pickups in those (Lace Sensors) are still in production (at least they were last year).

    Very low reading, compared to the other pickup.

    Yeah, I looked there, but which one would be a direct replacement both in size and sound.

    And if sound is different, should I replace all or just the other neck PU.

    If its going to be different, should I look at a different/better PU?

    Obviously still needs to fit because I don't want to have to modify body.


    Yep Australia :)
