Thunderbird pickups in EMG 35 form factor?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Hasdrubal, Jan 23, 2020.

  1. Hi all,

    The thunderbird pickups dimensions (3.7"*1.6") are close to the EMG 35 dimensions (3.5"*1.5"). Is anyone aware of a pickup builder that would fit a thunderbird p/up in the EMG 35 shell?

    The geometry of the coil and the size of the magnet has a lot to do with the sound of the pickup. It may not be possible to alter the dimensions of a TBird pickup to get it to fit and still have it sound the same. You may need to consider routing your Spector to accommodate one if you’re that committed to doing it.
