I have a Les Paul Junior
and yesterday I took it to guitar shop to get a new pickup installed
a humbucker shaped P90
Im quite confused because I didn't expect the P90 to be installed with the original humbucker mounting ring over it, I thought the pickup would just be on its own, is this natural?
Well it is humbucker shaped. The original humbucker came with the ring, so it would make sense for that pickup to fit in it.
The whole reason for making them the same size as a humbucker is so they will fit as direct replacement. Otherwise, what's the point?
