I'm enjoying playing this Lexington "project" but I'm sure the pickups would sound better without the weird Supro tone circuit.

Anyone ever wired these pickups in a standard type harness?

Yup, I have. No reason not to. I don't know what's in a Lexington, but I'd start with 500K pots.

In my experience, those pickups are kind of hit-or-miss. DC resistance is usually pretty high, magnets are often really weak. Kind of a baroque design . . .

Thanks! Nothing to lose, will report back .

The original bridge sat on the pick guard and since that pic I've installed a TOM with the posts in the body, that was a huge improvement.
