Hi guys

Just a quickie here. Are the some way to order yourself a dummy pickup? For instance a smokebomb middle-humbucker like Ace Frehley, or some kind of cheesy/flashing LED thing single coil tongue.gif

I have a guitar experiment which I plan to resume soon, and part of the experiment is to solder in new pickups my self smile.gif
It will mainly be a show guitar, meaning I`m prioritating the visuals of it. Since I`m basicly just gonna use the bridge pup and a little neck-pup on it if it survives pimping, I would love a cheesy substitute in the middle position biggrin.gif

I don't know of anyone that produces 'Dummy' Pickups. If you want to have LEDs or similar then you could try using a Strat style Single Coil Pup Cover and mount the LEDs in the holes where the Pole Pieces should be. If you want a Humbucker then either use two or buy and old, cheap covered HB and just use the cover!!

I'd rather have a full Bottle in front of me than a full Frontal Lobotomy!!

Not sure if there is a dummy LED pickup available for purchase, but perhaps you can make one yourself and install the battery in the body. Just buy 6 LEDs for example, and made some kind of a cast out of easy material, like some foam or something that you can paint. Just a suggestion.
