Installing A New Pick-Up ?

Recommended Posts


My friend drop off an old piece of junk black electric guitar last week as a joke but I immediately stripped it, cleaned it, painted it (where needed) waxed it 3 times, cleaned the surface rust off the chrome bridge and installed new tunning pegs.

Needless to say it actually looks pretty good now.

Anyways...my question is this. It had a single humbucker at the bridge which I removed and I am installing a new humbucker (a really hot one) a Kent Armstrong "Ultra Distortion". So, can I just drop in the new humbucker and it will work, or do I need to upgrade the tone and volume pods in the guitar as well? Are all Volume and Tone pods created equal? I know size wise it will fit.

I'm just trying to avoid any disapointments.

Thanks, Greg. :D
