Hi I'm a 50 year old dude from Denmark. I just love guitars, and I think of them as a piece of art, because I love to just look at them. I'd rather have guitars on my wall than paintings and pictures I have to admit that I'm probably more a guitar collector than a player, since I now have 11 guitars ... And still can't play much. I have been "trying" to learn to play for about 2 years. But huge fingers, not much time (I'm a single parent) and bad excuses is the reason why I can't really play for real yet. See for yourself at my Youtube channel: C4R573N 0L53N Learning Lead Guitar Anyway! I just got my first "real" Fender Stratocaster a few days ago for VERY little money (IMO) I bought a used 2013 Fender Modern Player HSS OW for €134 It was sold to me as defect, because It had no Bridge humbucker pickup and push/pull pot in it. The guy I bought it from had tried to replace the original pickup because it had a dead coil. But somehow he never got around to replacing the pickup and pot, and he just wanted to get rid of the guitar. I got the "broken" original pickup... the push/pull pot... a Roswell HAF alnico V pickup with a 250k pot... a strap and strap locks in on the deal as well. Since I don't know if the original Fender humbucker is broken, I have installed the Roswell pickup and push/pull pot, so the guitar is now broad back to life again I will try and figure out if the original humbucker pickup really is broken. Can a humbucker pickup really get a dead coil?. I'm sure there is a way to measure if it has a dead coil. Because I'd rather have the original Fender humbucker back in the guitar. If it really is broken, I would like to replace the Roswell humbucker at some point. Any suggestions? I'm sure you would like to see how she looks.
