the minihum parts..

By

Verified Buyer


...available her at stewmac are a perfect match for the minihum pickups currently sold by Gibs..., but none of these parts fit for the "real" '60s Epiphone pickups. However, the "new" mini humbuckers sound as good as the old ones, so it's always cool to have some parts around and experiment. Polepiece-spacing is wider than it once was ("old" was 48mm, "new" is 49mm), so it's also great to try them in a Fender- type instrument, where string spacing has been narrowed over the decades, to accept humbuckers.

Not A Good Fit!

By

Verified Buyer


I bought these rings for my Seymore Duncan mini humbuckers because one of them has a small crack on it but center cutout is too large for the pickups so I ended up using the old ones.

Heat shock works!

By

Verified Buyer


I'm thankful to Mr. Billy Yeung, I put the ring in hot water at 97 degrees celcius, and after about 20 minutes it was 51 degrees, then put it out from the water, dryed and cool down.
Inside was loosy clearance between the ring and the new pickup before, now it's tighter.
Filed outer skirt a little of it for the 1969 Les Paul Deluxe P-90 route.
Heat shock worked!

Outside dimensions are are not accurate, but works for my project.

By

Verified Buyer


Other reviewers have already pointed it out, and it is also my experience that the outside dimensions listed on the product page are 0.5mm (0.02in) smaller than the actual product. At the base, the rings I received are 35.5mm x 87.6mm--you get just over to an extra 1/64". This is the case for both the cream and black rings I received. As a test, these would not fit in a 1974 Les Paul Deluxe without filing, sanding, or heating. However, they fit, snugly, in a 2010 SG Special Tribute without modification. Fortunately, the guitar I am using these in benefits from a slightly larger ring.
As a side note, after some extended measuring, rings from other vendors/manufacturers that have come with sets of Lollar Firebird and Mini HBs, original Gibson Mini HB rings, as well as standard P90 soapbars have the measurements shown on the StewMac page--all without the bonus 0.5mm.

Too large for '78 Deluxe

By

Verified Buyer


As written in previous reviews, these are larger than the original parts - had to try nonetheless on my all-original '78 Deluxe and they are a no fit. In fact, they are WAY too large (at least the black ones I received) - see pic.

Heat shock

Verified Buyer


Ok as all negative reviews stated the covers are larger than an normal set of deluxe minis. The solution i came up to fitting these rings properly is with heat shock the plastic. By simply boiling water you can warp the plastic into shrinking itself. A lot of trial and error is needed, but it gets the results i need.

Tight fit for a vintage Les Paul Deluxe

By

Verified Buyer


I acquired a set of replacement pickups for my '69 LP Deluxe, to try to smooth out the choppy sound of the original mini-humbuckers. The installation process was more difficult than expected. I couldn't reuse the original mounting rings, because they had used the spacer and soldered-on nut process described in the mounting instructions available on the StewMac website, and couldn't be easily disassembled.

These replacement rings are slightly larger in outside diameter than the originals. I measured them with calipers and found them larger by 1/32" in length and width. They still fit in the routs in my guitar, but I had to trim the plastic face plate and the pickguard with a file, because they overlapped the routed holes by enough to prevent the mounting rings from being inserted.

The new pickups had more windings and were taller than the originals, so the standard nylon spacers are not long enough to level out these pickups in the rings. Instead, I used a set of the pickup mounting springs (which are not generally used with minis) in place of the spacers, and installed 2 nuts locked together to hold the pickups at the right height in the rings. Having the springs was essential to this process, because you need to compress the spring a little bit to get a wrench on the first nut to tighten the pair together. This seems better than soldering a single nut to the screw, and makes it easier to get the pickups level in the ring.

Other than the outside diameter, these mounting rings are a fine replacement for the originals. The screw holes are correctly aligned, the color is a perfect match, and the final product looks great. StewMac's customer service was especially good, pulling a pair of the rings over the phone and measuring them for me.

Fits perfectly!

By

Verified Buyer


I don't have a Gibson guitar, so I'm not worried about what the other reviews say. I put this on a custom build and it fits my mini humbucker perfectly. More of an ivory than cream in colour which suits me perfectly. Nice looking plastic, it seems to be substantial.

Deluxe Mini Humbucker Ring

By

Verified Buyer


This does not fit a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe route. It is oversized in both directions and is larger than the original and larger that the specifications listed on the web page. This should be corrected as this is not usable on a a Les Paul Deluxe. Specifications should be changed and this should be noted in the description.
