Hello everyone! I'm new to working on guitars and I've done a bit of research on this and haven't found any solid information. I picked up a Chibson because I liked the look of the guitar but thought I could easily swap out the pups after watching a tutorial or two. The problem I'm running into is that the guitar doesn't have any back plates and the tutorials I've watched required access to the volume/tone pots. I could be missing something simple here but could someone please explain how I'd go about swapping the pups on this guitar? Thanks in advance!
http://entertainment.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/03/12/17282643-chinese-dissident-ai-weiwei-set-to-release-heavy-metal-album?lite Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei announced plans on Monday to release a heavy-metal album that he said would "express his opinion" just as he does with his art. The burly and bearded Ai said 81 days in secretive detention in 2011, which sparked an international outcry, triggered his foray into music. "When I was arrested, they (his guards) would often ask me to sing songs, but because I wasn't familiar with music, I was embarrassed," Ai, 55, said in a telephone interview. "It helped me pass the time very easily. "All I could sing was Chinese People's Liberation Army songs," Ai said. "After that I thought: when I'm out, I'd like to do something related to music." A court in September upheld a $2.4 million fine against Ai for tax evasion, paving the way for jail if he does not pay. Ai maintains the charges were trumped up in retaliation for his criticism of the government... Well my interest is piqued anyway
