Dear all
my name is Andrea and i'm from Italy.
A couple day ago i bought a Dearmond Jetstar...but the pick ups are missing..
Excluding the vintage gold tone humbuckers, someone could suggest me some hum similar to the original ones?

Thanks a lot

Ah, too bad - I have a pair of new bass ones downstairs.

Good luck with your search!

I dunno about the Goldtones, but the "Little Buckers" that Guild is putting in their re-issue of the T-Bird...

...sound pretty nice:

Do you own a router and are you willing to alter the pickup cavities? Or to you just want to leave them stock?

In either case, you need to keep the dimensions of the cavities and your prospective pickup replacement candidates in mind when shopping. Will the new pickups fit in the old cavities? Will the new pickup surround completely hide the stock cavity?

If you are unwilling or unable to alter the cavities cleanly and/or don't want to pay someone else to do so, it may limit your options.

Some pickup vendors list dimensions in their specs while you may have to inquire via e-mail with others.

Not trying to patronize you: you haven't made it clear how handy you are with tools or how much/little alteration you are willing to do to the body.

Well...i prefer to mantain the body as it is, without alteration.
I can't find replicas of this pick ups...then i think the solution is to buy a vintage set.

"Ok. Are they good pickups?"

"Good pickups" is a subjective judgement: what might sound good to me might not to you. +You haven't specified what sort of music you intend to play with this instrument. Listen to the sound clip I posted above and judge for yourself whether or not that's the sort of tone you're looking for.
