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.

Doesn't sound like a guitar pickup problem to me. Kung consistent na ganun, possible pa. Kaso kung nagbabago siya sa gitna ng set, parang may problema ata sa amp or pedals.

Ano ba gamit mo other than the guitar? Also, na-try mo na ba sa ibang gitara yung amp at pedals?

mahal b Sir ang Gibson pick ups? I was also considering changing the lipstick pick up into a better lipstick brand, what do you suggest Sir? Max factor or everbilena?
hehehe, is dan electro good enough? sa mga repairs, you mentioned magkano aabutin ko Sir?

initially magaspang din ang frets niya, so I went to the luthier to smoothen the frets, pero hindi daw mai-adjust individually ang strings kasi tom bridge. ok naman
yung whammy bar niya.

sorry, let me rephrase that hahaha semi hollow. hahahaha yes may centerblock, my experience with semi hollows kasi, may feedback talaga pag high gain, especially pag hindi properly waxed ang PU's and shielded.

Yeah truth. It's just the physics of it e. At some point even well potted pickups in a semi will feedback given enough volume (not even gain!). That said as a rule I find that non OEM pickups tend to perform better, feedback wise, compared to OEM pickups.

The boutique pickup winders that offer umpotted units of course will squeal more compared to potted ones but they have a higher threshold because their windings are typically tighter and more snug hence there is little movement of the coil (which is the objective of potting pickups in the first place).

the stock pickups sounds meh. pag cinombine bridge and neck parang same lang when you use the neck alone. nag bobottleneck kumbaga.

my client had these EMG's installed. needed a custom pickguard and routing of the body to accomodate the batteries, battery box, and all the quick connect stuff ng emg.

Thanks for the replies Sir/Mam, so you were saying that even if I have the pots waxed, I will still experience the feedbacks because It is semi hollow?
 And waxing it will remove my problems, of it having fluctuations on its signals or not?
So the only option is to install EMG pick ups and a custom pick guard for it?
