New Pickups for my Carvin or Eric needs a soldering iron now!

So here is my Carvin Bolt T in her current state.

Here's the new loaded up pickguard that's going in her. It's from Pete Biltoft at Vintage Vibe Guitars, who did my humbucker sized seven string P-90s. It's has SP-90 single coils in the neck and middle and a H540-42 humbucker that's 10% overwound in the bridge. The knobs are a master volume and a tone for the singles and one for the humbucker and a standard five way switch..

Here's a gratuitous butt shot.

Here's the knobs and screws that go with it.

I also got a spare set of magnets with the pickups. It has Alnico V installed and I asked for Alnico III as a back up set though you can request Alnico II or Ceramic VIII. The pickups are are designed for easy magnet swapping so I might pick up some Alnico VIII or Alnico IV magnets as well just for giggles.

For those who care I got my receipt for this order and Pete started work on May 22 and it arrived at my house on June 1. Not bad considering I had Carvin ship him a new pickguard, to ensure it would fit. Not including the cost of the new pickguard it ran me $295.
