About 10 years ago, I owned a '78 Kramer 450B with the aluminum neck. The pickups had been changed, and it had cheesy single coils in the humbucker holes (looked stupid, sounded bad). It got swapped off in '94, the same day OJ was in the white Bronco (useless bit of trivia). Well, it reappeared back in March, and I bought it back for $50. The "gymnasium floor" finish had been stripped, and it now has a tung oil finish. The mystery pickups are long gone, and it now has only an EMG Select in the bridge position. It's not a collector's item by any means; clean originals can usually be had for $400 or less. I plan to clearcoat the body back to the decoupage level it originally had. So here I am with two humbucker sized holes, and not a snowball's chance of finding an original set of pickups, let alone the walnut mounting rings. I'm thinking about putting in Dimarzio Model Ones, for a couple of reasons. First, I love anything Dimarzio makes, second, they're black and will not draw attention from the aesthetics of the body, third, there's no mounting ring per se; the pickup will cover the extra screw holes that have been put in over the years. I guess my question is, what has been everyone's experience with the Model Ones, or does anyone have a better solution?
