Hey Techs; I recently installed an EMG Select Jazz pickup in my Sq P/J and it doesn't work. Measures open with a meter. It's new but it might be less hassle and $$ to try and fix it rather than send it back to the States with return postage. (Cheaper probably to buy a new one) I may have damaged it routing the wire where the bass is L-H. It was a tight fit too. Or it may just be defective.

I just need to know how to get the sealant out of the pickup shell so I can get at the wiring/windings. And if I destroy it completely, oh well, experience + parts.

Any ideas?
Thanks
Michelle

That particular pickup is epoxy sealed. You won't be able to get to the windings. I might just be a damaged lead. you can check a little closer to the pickup. If so it's a simple matter of soldering on a new lead close to the pickup. Good Luck
