Wooden pickup covers

This telecaster is fitted with two DiMarzio virtual P90 humbuckers. These pickup try to give a sound close to a P90, but are actual humbucking pickups. Changing the covers doesn't affect the overal sound. The bridge pickup has a cover made from ebony, the neck pickup has an USA maple cover.

Electric doublebass

The owner of this Fichter bass guitar came to the workshop and told he sometimes hits the pickup at the end of the fretboard while playing the instrument. The pickup becomes loose and doesn't work properly.

The pickup contains of four small pickups that transduce a single string. It was just glued to the wood with second glue, and was indeed very easy to remove.

A housing has been made from a piece of zebra wood. The housing has the height and radius of the fretboard. The small pickups are fixed into the wood, and the complete thing has been screwed firmely into the instruments body.
