Not many post-1970 guitars out there have a specific hard-to-find pickup that is desirable. There is one of which I am familiar. The elusive J92-C pickup that came in the neck-through Jackson "Professional" guitars that were made in Japan in the 1990s.

I have a Jackson Soloists "Professional" that is extremely well built with neck-through construction and awesome neck and fingerboard. It was always lacking in the tone department because the prior owner had removed the J92-C pickup and replaced it with a Dimarzio.

After a few years of searching I finally found the pickup and installed it last week. Pictures to follow.

Next on my 'seek' list is an original Horseshoe pickup for my 1975 Rickenbacker 4001 base. The prior owner had removed the Horseshoe and replaced it with an aftermarket pickup :(

Yup. Just because you can remove a factory pickup doesn't mean you should. Maybe working on your technique and practicing more is the answer.
