Hi,

I have some questions regarding pickup frames. I also posted a thread with these questions on another forum, but I thought I'd ask you guys as well. Smile Anyway, here's the link:

Thanks,

Here you go. http://www.mojomusicalsupply.com/

Look under "pickup parts" and then "baseplates" you'll find what you want there.

That was a fast reply! Surprised Thanks. Smile

That's an interesting link on which I saw that one baseplate differs from another, in terms of the holes drilled in it. So that's interesting. But it's clear, I think, that you can easily place a Seymour Duncan, for instance, on a DiMarzio baseplate. Which answered my second question. Smile

I'm still wondering about one being able to order seperate DiMarzio baseplates, though. But someone on Jemsite who's a DiMarzio dealer is going to look into it for me. I'll let you know what DiMarzio told him. Smile

Thanks again! Smile

DiMarzio probably get there baseplates from a parts supplier like the one in the link. If you are going to change baseplates there will be a little soldering involved to reatach the ground wire to the baseplate. Just thought id give you a heads up.

Thanks for the heads up but the reason I'm asking this is because I'm getting a guitar built. So the luthier is going to do the only soldering. Smile

Anyway, the luthier in question has contacted DiMarzio and they said to him that they didn't sell their components seperately. So I'm more or less stuck with Seymour Duncan's look. On this guitar I'm going to have Seymour Duncan humbuckers installed, you see? Direct mounted. So that will look different than direct mounted DiMarzios but the look has grown on me.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to the question I asked in post #5 of this thread on jemsite.com?

I'm very curious about it. Smile

The feet on my Suhr's pickups are like the DiMarzio's. I don't know if Suhr do square feet on there base plates ? Also DiMarzio use brass base plates on there pickups which may change the sound by taking a bit of high end off.

Why not get your Luthier to cut the feet to the right shape? "Job Done" Very Happy

That's interesting. Maybe Suhr gets their baseplates from the same supplier as DiMarzio. I could ask Ed or John. Maybe they'll let me know where they get them from so I can order a pair for myself. Smile

Well, judging by these photos I've seen on the internet the Suhr pickups that you buy seperately have them, at least?

Yeah, that's what he suggested as well... I dunno. I mean, wouldn't that result in jagged edges? It would be precision work, that's for sure. Maybe I can make it easy on him and get the plates with the preferred shape if I can. Smile

But I might go for the Seymour Duncan look in the end, as well. I'm not 100% sure which one I really want yet, since the Seymour Duncan look has started to grow on me. Smile

If he can make a guitar from scratch i would assume it would be in his capabilities to adjust the feet. NO ? If you can find them cool. but if you cant, don't settle for something you don't want. Your the one paying for it after all, Adjusting the feet would probly one of the least taxing parts of the guitar build. Nothing a file couldn't sort out.

I guess you're right. I'm still not sure which foot shape I'll go for, though. Smile
