Mighty Mite Guitar Pickup FAIL.
Haven’t tried mighty might pickups but woulda been cool to be able here how
it was goochifried. Though mighty might does make better necks than that
pickup was. Since somebody already changed out the pickguard why the fork
didn’t they get 1 with a humbucker opening in the 1st place. They were
probably being a cheap noob doing it that way.
Would have been nice to hear how ass-y it sounded. Maybe you’ve got it in
as the son of a sea cook, i resent that comment
my moms a bitch too
YOU DONT HAVE GROUND
Prior to this, the only Mighty Mite I’d ever heard of was a strain of weed.
Unlike your Mighty Mite, it was damn good.
Just wondering what the problem was with the sound of the PU was it a bad
one? With Humbuckers / dual rails they need to be wired to a 500k pot as a
250k pot in a strat will take too much treble off or wire in a resistor in
parallel to get 500k
Fun fact: my grandfather invented braided desoldering wire.
Frickin’ string…. probably would’ve broke on the first decent jam
session. Good vid Cobba.
Want real fun? Replacing the electrics in an F hole archtop with no cavity
covers. The pickup selector switch was in the top neck side corner. pots
were at the bottom, and the output was on the end. Had to do everything
through the F holes, but the pots were too far away and the f holes too
narrow to put the pots in place with fingers, at least for my fat fingers.
Wound up having to push a wire into the slot on top of the post, and feed
it through the hole, then hope like hell the wire didn’t come out too soon.
Fun job, yeah right. Now I really know why they’re called F holes.
Dave, let me ask you a question. Did you check phase on hot rails (each
coil phase must be same) they might be wired wrong. I have installed cheep
hot rails and it sound great. But I check phase all time in every pickup to
don’t get tiny sound. I believe you know all that so pickup can be faulty
but my guess is that i was wrongfully wired… you probably have more
knowledge about this stuff but before you throw away pickup check again.
Wow man…………didn’t you just have like 16,000 subs not long ago? Now
30k!!! CONGRATS dude!
That guard looks like was on a 22 fret Strat w the cob-job fingerboard that
overhung the plastic. Terrible design I’ve had to clip them b/c they curl
up and cause buzz de-luxe. Boo.
mighty mite sound like shit,muddy as ass,mother buckers sound awefull,i
found that out the hard way 30$ im 30$ lighter now
that pickup was a…
that buckle in the pickguard is one of my favourite things, imo it doesnt
always mean its been swapped out, on my telecaster its where i keep my
What was that song at 1:20? Tabs?
Probably just needed a 500k pot….my advice would be to convert one of the
tone pots to a volume pot dedicated to that pup…..or wire it as u would a
Dave, any chance you can put that Mighty Mite back in and do a sound demo?
I want to hear what “ass” sounds like, I have an idea in my head and want
to see if it’s accurate.
Great thing about locking tuners is, if you give the string 3/4 of a turn
on the post, you can easily turn the strings loose enough to take the
pickguard off and do work without removing them. The high E will pop once
in a while though as just watched XD
My HSS Strat has 2 of those Mighty-Mite hot rails, and a Mighty-Mite
“MotherBucker” in the bridge. Mine sound pretty good.
It might sound like ass because those Fender noiseless pickups want 500k
(or was it 1Meg?) tone and volume pots where most classic single coil
pickups want 250k pots.
The Fender pickups come with pots, and they highly recommend you use them.
So they might just not be well impedance matched, between the two different
You are a brave man to tin the wire right over the body with nothing under
it! That would be the kiss of death for me, I would flip a drop of molten
metal right onto the finish! I just installed a Seymour Duncan into my
Burrito Strat and it sounds wonderful! The quiet power of a humbucker, the
blade instead of a pole piece for the alignment forgiveness and all in a
single coil space. Magic!
