Poll Humbucker Pickup Ring (Spectrum II Sp5112)

Post by Myrixspecture Thu Jan 27, 2022 8:02 am

Has anyone seen a standard black pickup ring in the wild for these guitars? Their unique "3 Bolt" is proving difficult to find a replacement for. 

The one on the guitar is cracked in half, which i assume is due to age/hit/or cheap plastic.

I double checked the pickup ring from my WE2500 and it seems to fit just the same.

Any direction would be appreciated!

I don't know of any direct replacement off hand, perhaps another member has some better info.

Meantime, if the plastic is simply cracked (not rotted) it should be repairable with cyanoacrylate glue. I'd recommend stabilizing/bridging the crack (inside) with something suitable like a toothpick first, then sealing the crack.

Sand with a fine grit paper to smooth and even it out. If it's a cream colour you may still see a line but it should be solid and usable afterwards. Black can be touched up with a black marker pen.
