Ken Bonfield’s 1995 Alan Carruth OM #45 :: K&K Pure 12 String pickup install, Nashville high-strung tuning.
Ken and I have tried two other times to install a K&K Pure Mini in this guitar (his preferred pickup used in all of his Carruth’s). Both times the output was very subdued and lacked the response compared to his other guitars. Ken talked with K&K and they recommended trying the Pure 12 String (since this was tuned Nashville high strung - the high strings from a 12 string set). Wow, what a difference! Third times a charm.
1996 Alan Carruth #51 12-fret :: remove LR Baggs Hex saddles, plug bridge saddle slot(s) and rout for a bone saddle. Ken Bonfield
