FDP Forum / The 'Pup' Tent / Anyone have any problems with Fender Gen 4 pickups?



Mar 8th, 2018 09:21 PM   Edit   Profile  

I am 54-years old and have installed Guitar pickups starting in my teens. so I am damn good with soldering.

Bought 3-sets of gen 4's

1. First set no issues.
2. Second set, bridge cut out. I get a replacement from the vendor, then middle cuts out?
3. Third set...the height adjustment screw doesn’t go straight into the bobbin, there is a grommet that is put in and then threaded. They forgot to tap one side (could put height adjustment screw in) and I had to get a replacement?

FMIC was kind enough to replaced one set directly, which I got yesterday. I wired everything up and the bridge pickup doesn’t work?

They claim I am the only one who has had issues, yet when I spoke to a guy at a local GC store, the sales guy said they have returned a few Elites because of the same reason (pickup issues)....
I was wondering if anyone else has bought a gen 4 set and experienced issues?
