What do you need?jester536 wrote:Anyone have any detailed info on the Super 88's. Just picked up a MC200 on Ebay...each pickup is missing a screw...that I'm assuming levels the pickup. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Want to try the Super 88's first...then I might think about modding this guitar to another Garcia guitar. Would this be a guitar that one should worry about preserving as vintage....thoughts?
Thanks man. I've got an MC200(right handed)...the top edge of the pickups has 2 screws. Each pickup is missing the screw on the front corner. Both pickups are tilting back quite a bit. I'm assuming that screw will correct that. All of them are looking a bit old and rusty. Would probably like to switch them all out. Could just go to a hardware store and hope for the best but would like to find if there is a place to purchase replacements. the pickup selector switch is a little "funny"...wouldn't mind replacing that...again with something authentic.jester536 wrote:What do you need?
I might be able to help you out
Are you certain the MC150 came w/ 77s?GeneralGoldilocks wrote:another interesting thing about the super 88's, and i may be wrong here, but it seems like the ones that came in the mc200 were not wired like modern 4 conducter pickups, where you can coil tap and reverse phase, like a super 2 for instance. but the mc 300 and better i would assume have the 4 conductor wiring to get the "tri sound" out of them. i have been told you can take any humbucker and wire it for coil tapping but it is not easy. having owned musicians with super 88's (tri sound and just humbucker), super 77's (in an mc150), and used the musician with super 2's, i would say the super 88's are very vintage sounding, and the super 2's more modern, if that makes any sense. the super 88's sound warmer and fuller while the super 2s sound brighter and cut through the mix better, more like a strat, say. the super 77's were somewhat gibsonesque, i would say. i agree with brian, the brass bone nut can really over brighten the tone, and can lead to icepicky highs and some volume spikes if you aren't super smooth in your attack, although i have only tried one brass bone nut in the three musicians i have owned.
