Re: Repotting ceramic humbuckers
The "500T" is lame as out of the box, but can be made better. I have one I swapped the ceramic magnet (now resides on the fridge, where ceramics belong) for an alnico II and I very much like the sound of it now. Night-day difference. It is a hot wound p-up (~16k dcr) but those of us who don't use nu-metal gained up garbage amps need the extra push for a good lead tone.
