Im restoring an old harmony ES-335 style semi hollow. Im to the point to where i need to put some pickups in it. Im thinking i am goin to keep the original pickup in the neck posistion but i have to replace the bridge pick up (its not working).

any one have any ideas as to what would be an excellent pickup for it? I play mostly rock, nothing too crazy. I play through a /13 RSA23

Thanks! Rock on!

I have a Seymour Duncan Jeff Beck in the bridge of my '74 ES-345 - love it; loved it in '83 when I put it in, love it to this day... ditto on the PAF '58 in the 'board position...

Since you're keeping the original neck pickup, send the bridge pup to Pete Biltoft and have him rewind it; he'll wind it to sound however you want. Pete does fantastic work at a great price:
