old kraftsman pickups

Posted by jack on Tue, 01/29/02 - 22:44:46.

I have an OLD KRAFTSMAN guitar w/ 3 pickups. The guitar is a poor Les Paul copy with a long metal parallelogram pickguard with criss-cross lines on it. The 3 pickup covers are attached to the pickguard but inside there are no actual pickups. They are missing. I've looked hard but can't seem to find a pickup that would fit inside the covers. Would someone please give me some ideas as to where to look/find/buy some pickups that could fit inside the coverplates? The dimensions of the covers are 1-3/16 inches by 2-3/4 inches. I appreciate your help with this, thanks alot, jack

Re: old kraftsman pickups; my Guitar is Kraftsman not Kingston

I was looking for Kingston Bass parts earlier. I didn't notice I had typed Kingston rather than Kraftsman. I should have edited it before sending. I'm typing with one hand because I broke myself up pretty bad falling off the house recently.
Stay off your roof and have a great day.

Re: old kraftsman pickups

:I have a two pick up Kingston electric. Bridge pick up was open. I heated the cover enough to melt the wax and replaced it a similiar size coil and magnet from an old guitar from Japan. Heated the cover and inserted the pick up. You can add bees wax or candle wax to secure it well. The levels of the two pick ups are different. I may rewind the old pick up. I have enjoyed playing the guitar and think about replacing both the pick ups with humbuckers or put one single coil pick up out of phase with the other. The guitar has a nice neck and sounds good with a good set of strings on it. Go to a local guitar shop and ask if the could salvage some pick ups from some broken guitars for you. Some shops have junk boxs of good guitar parts. Good luck!
Be well and all great days,
Jerry

Old kraftsman (Acusitic Guitar)

My name is J.C. and i have just got an Old Kraftsman guitar.
And I am refubishing it. The old guitar was given to me in
the worst of shape, with no tuning pins, bridge, or nut...
And to make matters worst; someone started work on it and didn't finsh.. Leaving it partly sanded down, and also having some water damage. But I have pretty much saved it..
But I dont know it history, or year of manufaturing...
How can I find out about my dimond in the rough?
J.C.Andrews....

i've got one too, maybe a little better shape, it was my fathers. i have pictures of him playing it back in the forties, i need keys, pegs ,strap peg, and a couple inches of the white trim,(Ivory?). i'm gonna leave the original beaten up finish on it , i've heard if you refinish a guitar it changes the sound. i'd like to know a little more about the history too.
