    Anybody have any leads on a suitable replacement or someone who can rewind these!? I know the Duncan custom shop makes these replacements but at 170 each I rather have that be my last source.
    Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

    I'm also looking for replacement pickups for a Gibson Ripper that I'm refurbishing. Can anyone help out?

    From what I've gathered so far from rewinds, the $175 would be the cheaper route to go if you're talking a pair - plus you'd still have the old pups for whatever.
  4. I can't say enough good things about Kent Armstrong for this kind of situation. He can be contacted through WD music:

    Funkengrooven Turn it down? You gotta be nuts!!

    My pickup of choice is a Bartolini.
    he has multiple styles and sizes available check his website
    then call that guy in Florida that is their distributor.
    The cat is real helpful.
