Just wired in the new switch this weekend, while I was at it, re-adjusted neck, new pickup surrounds, new screws and a few new bridge saddles. To my surprise, everything works great now! Thanks for the help guys!

Good deal. At least now you don't have to worry about finding another pickup.

Yea if it works out of phase, I can't see any reason it wouldn't work in phase.

1+ bad switch

Well, all the wiring seems to be intact, and I cleaned all the pots with electrical cleaner, still no luck. The pickup still only works out of phase. So, if anyone out there has a spare pickup or a source for one, let me know. Thanks!

I could be wrong, but if it works out of phase, the phase switch might be broken internally. You could always try bypassing it to see if it works without the phase switch.

Thanks for the info, I have to check the wiring on my bridge pickup, as it only seems to be working out of phase. Hopefully I can get it working. So I'm gonna try that first.

Also, I would imagine that a Dimarzio X2N-B might work well as a replacement, as it is a bladed humbucker as well. They don't list it on their site, but I believe that it can still be special ordered.

it is smaller than a stock T-40, wouldn't use at the bridge position of a T-40, the pole pieces are too narrowly spaced, fine at the neck. the plastic surround i had came off in bits, so it needs that & the spring screws for height adjustment. this is a creme colored humbucker that was a replacement for a Gibson, the surround is an item you can get anywhere, a Gibson humbucker surround. DiMarzio discontinued it, they were once pretty common, Schaller makes a Starbucker now that looks just like it, creme colored, one height adjustment screw per side.

Is that a good fit? Or does it require some mods?

can't help you with a genuine T-40 p/u, but if you don't have anything, you can have the DiMarzio model G that i had in the neck position of a T-40 for many moons, lemme know

Hi guys, I just bought a t-45 to cannibalize, but it's too nice. Hence, I am still in the market for T-40 pickups. Anyone out there have an extra?
