Very useful, Marcus! In fact. I need to change pickups in various of my guitars! I´ll try to do. Thanks!
great idea for a tutorial! very useful indeed!
Very helpful lesson Marcus!
Perfect Lesson! Which Duncans did you put in?
Great tutorial but i dont think i would dare to do this myself with my guitar
This is a great tutorial Marcus, thanks for this!
It's very informative and super useful. Great job!
Great tutorial very useful(but you already knew that )
Very useful, Marcus!
I'm really considering changing my pups in my old guitar so this tutorial came just in time
That's reall really cool! I wanted to do this, so this is useful@
Awesome tutorial! Nicely done
Sorry for triple post... hope you liked it.. I loved it!!
Fantastic tutorial, Marcus! Very useful.
Awesome! This is problaby the most useful tutorial I've seen in several months
Great job ^^
awesome, I agree with Canis!
I´ll try this in early future, thanks Marcus!
Very well made tutorial!! Its really informative and inspiring to try to change pickups myself!
Nice job Marcus...
but I think the difficulty for this lesson should be at least a 4
this looks very intimidating!
I've never changed pickups by myself
but I just might try after this amazing tutorial,
wow danke marcus, sehr hilfreich
Extremely useful stuff. Thanks Marcus
Wow Marcus this is hell of a job you did!!!
Nice tutorial man
I've tried recently to change my pickups and I couldn't complete the tasl because I connected all wrong :S
But with this tutorial is all more clear
Thanks everybody. And to everybody that feels like trying it, don't be scared, it is not that hard (as you can soldering is the hardest part for me ) Just make sure you prepare everything in advance and pay attention to the connection sheet that comes with pickups, there you should find all the information about what cable is ground or hot, or what cables might have to be connected.
@ Zakk: Those are the Alnico II Pro pickups, so far the only Duncan pickup I ever had was the Jeff Beck model which I didn't really like, but those ones are very nice.
This is just a wild guess but are those Alnico II Pro pickups by Seymour Duncan?
Oops! My guess was right but too late... Did you install them because you liked them in the Slash signature Les Pauls you tested for a German Metal magazine ?
Yup, thats how I got to know about them. I really liked their sound and since I was not really happy with the Dimarzios that have been in this Les Paul I thought it might be a good idea to check them out, so far I am very happy with the result.
Thanks for the guide, I don't have cash for a new guitar that would be much better than my current one, so changing pickups is what stalks my mind lately. Now I have the knowledge necessary to win the day;)
very useful tutorial Marcus.
Great, I am happy we have this tutorial now and I will right get on it.
Great tutorial Marcus !
Very helpful! Now I feel confident enough to actually give this a try sometime.
Very entertaining to watch, please make more tutorials, you have a cool way of explayining and making fun at the same time. Mehr davon
Great useful lesson Marcus, thanks!
Usefull lesson Marcus, really cool of you to do one like this. A tip though, when you put in the pickups, put a little tape on one of the cables. That way you can put them in at the same time, a little time saver Means more practise time.
Thanks for the tip Oxac, simple but effective, I have to say I never thought about this, I always did it one by one
This is very informative and useful, thanks, Marcus! With this tutorial i`ll try to change my pickups in future:)
I learned a lot from this one Marcus, much needed man, and I will try to learn to solder like you! It is a bit hard for me to do such a neat soldering job, I should practice a bit! Your english is very fluent in these videos, there are no crossfades, so I think this tutorial is definitely a keeper in my bookmarks!
Thank you for this awesome and useful lesson
yeah it works, i have a "new" guitar now, just in 10 minutes!
I would like to know a little more about the humbucker/single coil blending with the "tone control pot". What kind of different tones you get with this wiring. It would be nice if you could record the sound with different settings.
Very useful,tnx Marcus !
Thank you Marcus! I might try it by my own in the future.
Loved this lesson. Been thinking about putting some burstbuckers in my epiphone and this goes a long way to showing me how. A question though. This seems like a good time to put in shielding and was wondering how hard it is to do that. Whether I should use the paint or tape and what the differences would be. Any ideas?
Great job Marcus, lesson is very informative but simple
This was amazing, and I'll be sure to use this video if I'm gonna change my pickups.
I was just wondering, though, what guitar are you using, and how much did it cost ? It's beautiful (I know it's Gibson Les Paul, but not in greater detail)...
Thanks for this lesson Marcus. I was aware that you did it, but it wasn't relevant for me until now. I want to change the pickups in a Jackson guitar so I just watched the series. Thanks for doing this!
I just bought some new pickups for a project guitar and was looking for something exactly like this. I wouldn't have even thought to look on this site. Wonderful video thank you
Great lesson, very helpful for guys who aren't into technical stuff
i agree with muris, i always wanted to know how to do that!!
thanks for sharing this tutorial, it´s very usefull for all of us!!
Thanks a lot guys, it is great if I could help you to change your pickups too :-) That guitar is a Limited Edition Les Paul Standard, but don't ask me how much it would cost in the shop, I didn't have to pay And please check the topic about this single coil setting in my part of the forum, there is some updated news about it.
that was awesome! I'm still gonna have somebody do mine at a guitar shop I know of and go to a lot. --just to be safe. I know I'll love it when I get new pickups!!
One tiny remark. I would advise peopel to write down the places of the colored cables before disconnecting them. I for one am someone allways getting myself in trouble forgetting that
Very good advice, thanks mate!
@ Williamwhite advice is good. we have to take snaps before disconnecting the cables coz everybody got Hd mobile phones now a days, i think it will be helpful too
Hi everybody, for todays lesson we don't need any scales, chords, rhythms or stuff like this, all we need is a guitar, some tools, some pickups and the will to put those new pickups into our guitar.
If you are about to change pickups for the first time you might be a bit nervous about this, at least I was when I opened one of my guitars for the first time, but actually it is a rather simple process. There are some basic things you should pay attention to though: Collect all the tools that you need before you start, like this you don't have to stop in the middle and look for things. It is also recommended to keep all the little screws from your guitar at a safe place, otherwise you might lose them easily and it is really no fun to look for such small things. Also keep in mind you will need a new set of strings after you changed the pickups, so make sure you still have a set at hand.
It might be a good idea to watch this whole lesson at least once before you start, like this you get an idea about what you have to do and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
