Took 8 months to find... 84 Schaller reverse zebra humbucker

Post by loomis » Sun Apr 07, 2019 4:38 pm

Finally. It took 8 months to locate one. Not easy to find.

1984 Schaller reverse zebra. Two-wire (well one wire and a ground), 8.14k? Is that pretty standard?

Anyone have a ring for it? Can't find one of those either.

Now all I need is a decent-color 85 or 86 Baretta body and neck plate.

Thanks!

Well, that probably wouldn't be 100% correct on an '86, as they moved toward Seymour Duncans by the; although they probably still used them on some guitars. But that's actually the easiest of the three to find! A 3-hole Schaller pickup ring... Baretta body... D plate... Good luck!

Looks minty fresh.

I was lucky enough to find one last year, maybe a little longer ago complete with pup ring.
Vin hooked me up.

Mine's going in my 85 CAR Retta which is currently sportin' a Screamin Demon which sounds great in her but i wanna put it back to original.

I posted the links for the brand new Schaller pup rings a few days ago:

One 5 ounce plastic pickup ring that costs $6 has $34 shipping to the USA. I don't have enough middle fingers to show them.
