The Summer of Gibson Bass Pickups

What's up kids?

Well, things are typically behind schedule here at the old SSW. It's been a crazy summer with lots of non pickup related drama involving wisdom teeth and dead cars and plumbing and wiring issues.


I still have a lot of work to do in the shop but things are coming together. More o that later....

It's turned into a Gibson Bass Pickup sort of summer. I have this cool Gibson EBO pickup in that I'm told is a 1966. It's totally dead and I need to figure out why. I'm also working on some Gibson Grabber pickups and I'm working on some new models that will be direct replacement for a Ripper pickup.

The new guitar humbuckers are could along. We have tested out some sets with W. Jeffrey Jones and he is reporting back good news.

I'm waiting on some new parts for them. The new molds aren't ready yet but they soon should be.

Well.... that's it for now. It's good to be back!

That pickup in the picture is actually a Gibson "MUDbucker". Found on the EB-serie basses from gibson.
