Which pickup?

I'd rather be sharp than flat.

im assuming the D&D came with Alpha Pots so get something of the same size. better yet, take the pickguard off so we can see.

Lipstick pickup on the neck, full-sized humbucker for the bridge. 250k pots for the lipstick vol and tone, 500k pots for the HB vol and tone. 0.047uF capacitor for the lipstick tone, 0.022uF capacitor for the HB tone.

Assuming there's no need to modify the pickguard and/or route the cavities underneath..

Just make sure the bridge humbucker is an f-spaced one. Baka kumuha ka ng Gibson-spaced humbuckers eh hindi mag align yung strings sa pole pieces.

thanks sa mga info Sirs/Mam, so ang humbuckers na kukunin ko yung pang Gibson ES 335? and masyadong maliit yung 250k pots? ano po ba ang ideal? kasya rin ba ang PU na pang jaguar sa neck nun?

Ang problem ko kasi sa hi-gain settings masyadong madaming feed back kahit sa humbucker naka set. Pero nangyayari yun kapag more than 20mins ko na syang ginagamit, sa simula ok lang pero pag tagal dun na. humihina rin sya pag ginagamit ko ng matagal, then yun magkakaroon na ng mgadaming feedback.

Diko lang sure kung defective pick ups ang napakabit sakin or sa electronics, under warranty pa nman siya. malayo din sa pasig area kung dadalhin ko, iniisip kong idiretso sa luthier, pero mas ok ba kung sa D&D ko muna idaan?

I have a D&D DC2 and as far as I have observed, they are not potted with wax (which, in effect, will reduce feedback). About the Gibson ES 335 pickup, they are good replacements. If you're planning to let it do to a luthier, might as well save for a bigger budget by changing also the pots and also having your guitar and pickup cavities shielded. Para isang bukasan na lang.

And oh, I forgot, di pala kailangan F-spaced yung pickup to be replaced. Naka TOM bridge style pala yung T-rex.
