I bought a Matsumoku built Vantage flying V and sadly the bridge MMK45 pickup is dead. Even sadder, the cutout for the pickup won't accommodate any of the humbuckers I have. I really, really, really, really etc... want to restore this to it's original config and that means I NEED a single wire MMK45 - and that means I need HELP. So, if anyone happens to have one or knows where a poor soul can get one, please let me know.
Thanks

With the pickup cover or without? I'll dig around and try to rustle up a pic or two tomorrow evening to send for your perusal. What does the bridge pup measure for ohms?

There's no cover. The neck measures about 10.7. Since it's mounted like a tele - through the pickguard, a covered bucker doesn't fit in the rout.

I have one covered and one uncovered. Maybe check out ozark's first as his reads a tad hotter than mine. If that fails I will not be doing anything with my pair anytime soon. Good luck, that V deserves a proper resto. :up:
