JTV-59 pickup change...
by jasonk931 on 2013-01-08 21:32:21.1380

Hello everyone,

I'm lovin all the Lne 6 products, and I truly love my JTV59! All except the regular pickups. I have 2 Gibson LP customs and I'm kind of addicted to their sound. I have an extra set of Custom pickups, and I was wondering if I change out the pickups on my jtv59, is it a simple switch out, or is it even doable?

Don't get me wrong, the stock pickups rock, but my ear is spoiled to my other pickups. However, I love the feel of the jtv59 and the modeling capabilities in conjunction with my HD500.

Thanks for any help given.

Some people have changed out the pickups. I don't think it's much different than changing pickups in any electric. Since it is considered a modification to the guitar, it would void the warranty. So that's something you might want to consider before heading down that path. Here's a doc that shows the wiring diagrams for the different models. There's nothing inherently different about the pickups themselves than a regular pickup.">">
