thanks Thorny...I picked 2 of the 45s up from drdave...what i ended up doing was using a original 53 pickup plate and magnet and mounting 2 coils from the 45 bridge pickup. The Coil leads are connected differently on a 960 than the 45 was wired...the 53 pickup coils use 1 red coil wire to run to controls, both coil black wires are connected and run to controls and the last red coil wire is connected to pickup plate ground along with shielding/ground pickup lead wires to controls ground...works exact as original mmk53.....I compared it to the 53s that were inside the 270 i received from Joe and there is no difference....the resistance is slightly different...but most all of them were slightly different joes was 11.95....the new setup is 12.65.

Thanks for reply..you guys are the best...
