Hi, I live in Northamptonshire and am planning on buying some new pickups for my Jim Deacon strat. I have two questions:
1) I'm not sure about measurements and stuff, whether the pickups will fit in the pickguard if they're a different brand?
2) Does anyone know where I can go to get the pickups replaced for me as by my first question you can tell I'm a noob when it comes to this and have no idea what I'm doing with soldering and de-soldering.

Thanks, Tom

The new pickups should fit fine, no problem. I haven't heard of a case where new pickups haven't fitted in a copy.

Any guitar shops nearby? Most should gladly (and fairly cheaply) swap the pickups for you.
