In some builds it is preferred to place the pickup under the lid of the box, this practice is often referred to as "ghosting". Many builders have had good success using the MGB flat pups for these applications. MGB is proud to introduce our new Ghost Pups. These flat pups/harness assemblies are ideal for ghosting. The pickups include a high quality 3M adhesive pad for securing the pup to the lid of the box. They work best if the surface of the box is relatively smooth. Additional adhesive such as E6000 may be needed for rough surfaces.
The harnesses includes volume and tone pots along with a jack. A ground wire for the the bridge and the hardware are also included. 500k pots are used on the double coil pickups and 250k pots are included on the single coil pickups.
The Lucky 13 and Point Five O are stronger pickups and best suited where the distance to the string is greater than 1/4 inch.
