    Personally I'd just do the Schallers. I've upgraded a few old MM's with them- drilling the holes is dead simple, and they work so well.

    With regards to the trem- no need to match the gauge...

    That's tough- they're sealed, so it's not as simple as spraying contact cleaner in pot or lever switch. (Still you could try ... Deoxit is the one to use.)

    Or, just replace it. MM will sell you...

    Yeah ... that's the Morse neck HB. It does great with lots of gain for solos, but is otherwise wooly. Totally works for Steve in that application.

    That's a really hard issue to diagnose remotely. I would definitely take a closer look at the pot and any potential grounding issues.

    Personally, I don't think you need a straight-edge and gauges to do this correctly.

    Use the string as a straight-edge- fret it as the first fret, and also use your thumb to fret it at the 15th or...

    In my experience, the EB folks have been very diligent about following up on QA issues like rust, breakage, etc.

    I would contact them directly and let them help you.

    The switching scheme uses combinations of the various 4 coils. You could find a way to wire up one pickup that doesn't split, but I think the final result will be different. (You'd get bridge HB in...

    I'm not sure who actually makes it, but you can buy it direct from MM, so I'd probably start there (I've bought several from them, fwiw). It's a 4-pole 5-way, but beyond that what matters is that the...

    The wiring part of it is pretty straight-forward, so yes.

    The Axis pickups direct mount to the body, so they're set at a particular height. Not sure what height the replacements will end up being.

    Check the full path of the string as well. It's possible the string is making contact elsewhere, behind the saddle. (Should be easy to gently file down.)
