    So i raised the pickup on my Epi Jr. with some washers, around .100" and it sounds killer. It works fine but looks crap, who sells risers of various thicknesses for dog ears? 20200118_090206-1.jpg my phone wont take a good pic but you get my drift.

    Ebay is where I got some. Allparts or Angela Instruments. I think. Lindy Fralin. Mine are thick, they have .10 I think too. My thick ones are a bit rough on the edges though. Looks like cut with a laser or waterjet device or something and not polished.

    Nice vintage radius on that P90 cover! I hate the squared off modern ones.

    Risers. I have nice Lollars which came with the pickups, and ones stamped Gotoh, which I got at Guitar parts resource, not sure they still exist though. You wouldn’t want those anyway. Like the ones from Allparts, they’re comically oversized, and need a lot of work to cut down to the correct size.

    Yeh, I’d avoid the AllParts ones ... I had some lying around for years which I only recently had cause to use and they were so ridiculous too big it was just, well, ridiculous!

    Managed to order some from Oil City Guitars (I’m in the UK) which was spot on for raising the bridge pickup after I’d retro-fitted dogear P90s to my 335.
