    Default Is it possible to...?

    Is it possible to remove the top (and bottom) of a Seymour Duncan SSL-1? I mean, to have this



    turned into this...



    Are those parts removable? Anyone ever done it?

    it all depend if you intend on using it afterward. i did that for my franky without any real problem. but the pup's trashed after that. i had a bunch of old pups so tested it and it worked. Now i would'nt try it on a real working up. There might be other ways of doing it, Maybe YMI5150? as some good pointers on that.

    YMI5150? has been very helpful, but I wanted to include these on a working pickup. I want one that works. And, of course, not to pay an arm and a leg to have one custom made...

    The top and bottom are one peice. That's what the wire wraps around.
    Its hard to discribe what it looks like.
    But you could tear an old pup apart to see what I mean.
    Its kinda interesting too.
    Exsperiment with paints. You'll get good at that shit
    Its all part of the fun.
    Gotta airbrush?

    It's not just the colour, Ron. It's the texture. I opened a pickup a while back and ruined it. It was an awful pickup, so no big deal. I was hoping that SDs were like this:

    You bet, ruining a Duncan just to satisfy curiosity would be dumb...

    I'll try to register on their forum and ask someone there.

    You want the black one to look like the red one? I'm not guitar builder but tape up the metal..paint the top red..paint the bottom white...let it dry well..then paint the bottom that brown..when wet run a fine comb carefully to make the lines or something.experiment..run some type of plasticy material or something around the coils(people can likely suggest a material) bingo. no? The shape appears to be the same. Who would notice the real differences when done and installed?
