Hey everyone,

I’m trying to find where in Canada I can order a set of tall and short tapered pickup rings for my LTD-M400. The guitar came equipped with EMGs but to purchase the rings from EMG is about $30 in shipping.

Just looking to see if anyone has any recommendations!

Thanks

Seriously, those are available all over the web for next to nothing. eBay, AliExpress. Just measure and make sure you have the right fit.

Yes I know they’re a dime a dozen from all those sites, most don’t provide measurements and then you wait a month for shipping. Which is why I was looking to see if any Canadian retailers stock them so I can just purchase them from a shelf or at least have a shorter shipping time.

You have to wonder if one of the sites that posts files for 3-D printing stuff has pickup rings posted. Lord knows there's just about everything else you never thought of on those sites.

I would think that there must be some sort of makerspace or shared 3-D printer in the Barrie area, or at least in Vaughan. We have several here in Ottawa, with one at the public library not far from me.

Hmm that’s a good idea, never would of thought of that. I’ll look into it that could be interesting!

I would hit a local music store or pawn shop that does a lot of guitars.Usually the repair guy has a bucket full of parts on hand ...good chance there would be some rings kicking around.

Thingiverse if you are looking for 3d printed stuff, but to be honest i don't think the price will be worth it.

Well that appears to be the answer!
I did give them a look, but the reviews for the pickup rings were bad and apparently didn’t fit properly with standard pickups or the mounting holes on standard import guitars so I decided against.

You can have them good or cheap or fast. Pick two.

I don’t want cheap ones, I just want some decent quality ones that won’t cost an arm and a leg to ship really. Fast and good ideally. But I ordered some PRS ones for about $15 shipped on the weekend so we will see how long they take.
