Greetings,

Just bought a 1949 (possibly 4Cool Fender Dual Pro that needs some work.
Looks like the ribbon is collapsed on one of the Boxcar pickups and I am interested in
A) getting the Pickup rebuilt / who to contact for service
B) buying a used one / where to look besides ebay
or
C) seeing if a later 50's era Trapezoid Pickup would fit the mounting holes without too much trouble.

She's already been refinished and Legs added/replaced so I'm not terribly concerned in Frankensten'ing it a bit if another style pickup fits.

Thanks

Jerry Sentell did a good job for me. These pickups have a reputation for lacking lows so I had him overwind it. I love the result.
