Question: SBMM JP150 pickups upgrade question – Has it been done? Is it straight forward?
Newly purchased SBMM JP150 (would have loved an EBMM but don’t have that money).
I’m very impressed with the quality, despite it being the affordable version, the far east workmanship is very good these days I know, and setup quality check in USA must account for a lot. Even the wood quality, I can tell when tuning, the vibrations are really clear, and that satisfying feeling as it so obviously goes in tune.:)
The pickups sound good, but even so, I would like to upgrade to the EBMM equivalent, which are DiMarzio Illuminators I believe.
My question is simply, is it a straight swap (screwdriver and soldering iron job), or is there routing or more involved.
Thanks in advance.
