high i'm new to guitar could you put a gibson 57 humbucker in a jackson dinky without buying adaptors
#2
yea........ guitars arent like electronics ya solder and it will work on every guitar from the most expensive to the cheapest. as long as it has the routing space for it. Does the jackson have a humbucker in the spot you are putting the humbucker in?
Epiphone Les Paul Ultra II(
"Epicaster" pimped out strat
Fender Blues Jr.
DeltaLab RD1 Rock distortion
Barber handmade USA Direct Drive Overdrive
DeltaLab Stereo chorus
MXR 6 band EQ

Sure, but it may not fit in the pickup ring right.

Also, there's no such thing as an adaptor for a pickup.
One more thing: Why would you want to? The Gibson 57 Classic is way overpriced.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

are you buying the pickup just because its a gibson product?
it would work, but then you have the whole realm of will it sound good.

I'll add my $0.02 here, I can understand you buying just to experiment, but keep in mind that the tone that most people will associate with a Classic '57 is the PAF in a les paul sound. Don't underrate the interaction between pickup and guitar, especially for a low output PAF style pickup.

A Classic '57 in a Jackson is not going to sound like a Classic '57 in a les paul. They're going to sound quite different, and in all honesty, it probably will not sound all that good.

Yes you can do it, but you shouldn't. It will likely sound much worse than the original jackson pickups, regardless of what music style you play.
